Item description for Form Criticism of the Old Testament (Guides to Biblical Scholarship Old Testament Series) by Gene M. Tucker & J. Coert Rylaarsdam...

Overview
Because of its long oral tradition the Old Testament includes an array of different literary types and compositions. Analysis of these genres in the biblical material is known as form criticism. Gene Tucker draws on contemporary speech patterns to illustrate how the scholar pinpoints various categories or genres. The basic principles of form criticism are outlined and many biblical examples given. The story of Jacob's struggle at the Jabbok and the prophetic literature are treated in detail. While form criticism does not solve all the interpreter's problems, it forms an essential tool for exegesis and for recovering the living history of Old Testament literature.

Reviews - What do customers think about Form Criticism of the Old Testament (Guides to Biblical Scholarship Old Testament Series)?

Form Criticism of the Old Testament  May 10, 2007
Because of its long oral tradition the Old Testament includes a great variety of types of literature - narrative, poetry, proverbs, hymms. Form critism analyzes these genres within the biblical material in terms of structure, intention, and setting. Gene Tucker clearly defines the basic principles and methods of form criticism and outlines its relation to other disciplines.

Using examples from our own speech patterns, the author illustrates how we can recognize various categories of literature. The Old Testament contains genres from every facet of life, from elevated poetry to ceromonial rites to drinking songs. Dr. Tucker picks two representative categories - narrative and prophetic writing - and applies the questions of form criticism to them.
