In this study, Moberly examines how story and theology are combined in this Old Testament passage. Using a narrative interpretation, he presents a balanced exegetical view. Moberly considers several aspects of methodology, including current topics under biblical criticism, literary allusions, textual criticism, and theological paradox. He then goes over the passage from several points of view. He also includes indexes, bibliographies, and a detailed table of contents.
R. W. L. Moberly is Lecturer in Theology at the University of Durham.
