Have you ever considered the Bible’s role as great literature? Exploring various literary forms and devices found in Scripture, students will learn how understanding concepts such as poetic parallelism, metaphors and similes, heroic narrative, suspense, and conflict can enhance their grasp of God’s truth.

If you want to rightly understand the Bible, you must begin by recognizing what it is: a composite of literary styles. It is meant to be read, not just interpreted. The Bible’s truths are embedded like jewels in the rich strata of story and poetry, metaphor and proverb, parable and letter, satire and symbolism. Paying attention to the literary form of a passage will help you understand the meaning and truth of that passage.

How to Read the Bible as Literature takes you through the various literary forms used by the biblical authors. This resource will help you read the Bible with renewed appreciation and excitement and gain a more profound grasp of its truths.
