Overview

This collection of essays, the work of a group of early-twentieth-century scholars, treats literary structure in the books of Samuel. The essays chosen represent a shift in biblical study from pure historicism to literary analysis. Among the topics covered are literary type, historical value, and narrative art.

Go deeper in your study of Samuel with the Logos edition of Narrative and Novella in Samuel. All Scripture passages link to your favorite Bible translation in your library. With the advanced search features of Logos Bible Software, you can perform powerful searches by topic or Scripture reference—finding, for example, every mention of “succession” or “conflict.”
