Ever wonder how you can take the Old Testament narratives and make them relevant to making choices today?
Although some of the Old Testament narratives seem to filled with the mundane, Dr. Gordon J. Wenham shows how Old Testament narratives can function as 'Torah' and inform one's ethical choices. He explains how certain narrative occurrences such as the repetition of key words or themes, the overall rhetorical purpose of a book, intertextual correspondence, and key contextual indicators of mood, provide clues to the ethical message of the implied author. Using the books of Genesis and Judges as test cases, and examining texts that offer clear moral guidance as well as those in which the lesson is less obvious, this book clear explains how these texts can affect moral choices.
