Item Description...
Overview
This book introduces neophyte readers to the basic concepts of history and historical writing and provides a simple framework of events and periods that can be used to situate historical data reported in texts or presupposed by them. Standard interpretative methods are accessibly explained and illustrated by consistent reference to 2 Samuel 24. The focus of discussion moves from the narrow level of individual pericope to larger units of meaning. Because the ultimate goal is to expose the claims made on the reader by these biblical texts and to help the reader make sense of those claims, the interpretative spotlight rests on the present interaction of text and reader rather than on the past.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Know wonder I don't understand the bible!!!  May 19, 2008
Know wonder I don't understand the bible! I read the analysis of the the book of Jonah. I am completely convinced that this author is correct. Instead of seeing the book of Jonah as bad history or a mythical parable, this author wants us to see Jonah as a production of the satire school of seeing the truth, much like the popular comedy show, "The Daily Show," starring Jon Stewart. All of a sudden, the ancient writers don't seem so out of touch with modern day life. The other books of the bible are analyzed in similar fashion, finding new insight beyond the traditional viewpoints. You could read a lot worse but not much better.
