Although the Pentateuch is not a novel, it would behelpfully read as such: a story of a problem, one thatplaces readers into its plot structure and provides aresolution. Such a reading would disclose a beginning,middle and ending, from before Sinai, through Israelnot entering the promised land, to an unsatisfying resolution!(although Joshua continues the story with greatpromise) - all ends badly in Kings.
The Genesis-Kings story begins and ends with exile.We too, are waiting for a promised land, we too are inexile. Arie Leder gives us insights into the big story ofexile and reconciliation that flows throughout the Bible.
