Every reader of the Bible, from the most casual to the most scholarly or devotional, encounters a variety of literary genres: myth and allegory, dramatic and lyric poetry, parable and proverb. The Bible and Literature offers an interdisciplinary commentary that explains and gives examples of these genres, first with biblical selections, and then with works by masters of twentieth and twenty-first century literature. The authors then move their focus to themes of spiritual quest, romantic love, war and peace, and liberation. Slightly Imperfect.
