Reading the Bible as Literature Collection (6 vols.)

by

Lexham Press 2015–2016

Overview

In the Reading the Bible as Literature series, Leland Ryken explores the intersection of the Bible and literature. In the series preface he writes, “It is my belief that a literary approach to the Bible is the common reader’s friend, in contrast to the more specialized types of scholarship on the Bible.” Ryken shows pastors and students and teachers of the Bible how to appreciate the craftsmanship and beauty of Scripture. And he goes one step further than merely explaining the literary approach to the Bible—he includes exercises to help students of the Bible master it.

Praise for the Reading the Bible as Literature series

Leland Ryken has been a pacesetter in the literary study of the Bible, especially within the evangelical community. Those of us who find this approach to Scripture especially enriching are always ready to listen when Ryken speaks. Readers who master Ryken’s principles will find the Bible open up to them in new, exciting ways.

—Robert B. Chisholm Jr., Chair and Professor of Old Testament Studies, Dallas Theological Seminary
