Words and the Word: Explorations in Biblical Interpretation and Literary Theory

While all of the contributors included some examples of how their method is applied to a specific text, it would have been valuable if each had focused on a common passage. This would have allowed the reader to observe how or if each method can illuminate different aspects of the same biblical passage. This critique aside, the book has much to offer by means of methodologies and approaches to a literary study of the Bible. This is an important book for those seeking to become more informed about the value for biblical studies of the still emerging field of literary theory.
