A Complete Handbook of Literary Forms in the Bible


To truly understand the Bible, we must know both what it says and how it says it. Renowned literary scholar Leland Ryken leads readers to discover the importance of the literary forms present throughout Scripture. Whether examining genre, motifs, figures of speech, archetypes, or rhetorical devices, this accessible handbook features more than 250 alphabetically arranged entries highlighting common literary terms related to the Bible. Each entry contains a succinct definition, helpful illustrations, and a representative list of passages where that particular literary form is present. More than merely a dictionary of biblical symbols and images, this comprehensive resource will help readers better understand the underlying structure of Scripture--giving a clearer shape and deeper meaning to each and every page of the Bible.
