Item description for Story as Torah: Reading Old Testament Narrative Ethically by Gordon J. Wenham...

Overview
Using familiar stories in Genesis and Judges as test cases, Wenham demonstrates how Old Testament narratives can function as ""Torah,"" informing one's ethical choices.

Publishers Description
How do the grand stories of Israel and her heroes, as well as the many seemingly mundane incidents found in these narrative stories, help guide today's readers in their daily behavior?
Renowned scholar Gordon Wenham offers Story as Torah, a succinct monograph demonstrating how Old Testament narratives can indeed function as "Torah," informing one's ethical choices. He uses the books of Genesis and Judges as test cases, working with texts that offer clear moral guidance as well as those in which the ethical teaching is at first glance dubious.
This accessible book will help seminarians, pastors, and other students of the Bible use Old Testament narratives responsibly.

Reviews - What do customers think about Story as Torah: Reading Old Testament Narrative Ethically?

Alternative reading of a familiar book  May 19, 2008
A much read book is hard to read over and over without having the same reaction each time the familiar is revisited. This work contemplates the old testament as a literary work, much like a novel. New insights pop out at one as a consequence. Worth the purchase price.
