Item description for Storytelling in the Bible by Jacob Licht...

Modern techniques of literary criticism, combined with a deep love of the Bible, have been employed by the author in this profound and original work. In six chapters and an Epilogue, the author analyses the aesthetic means by which the narrators achieved their ends. He shows us mimesis in the story of Saul and the witch of En-Dor. He shows how intense emotion led up to and conveyed as David hears the news of Absalom s death. He uses the story of the floating Axehead (2 Kings 6, 1-7) to demonstrate the way the narrator creates scenes (and invites the reader to stage it as a play in his head). The author allows the Old Testament narrative to speak for itself. In his own comments there is an arresting freshness combined with a vigor which enlivens the scholarship which illuminates the book.

Reviews - What do customers think about Storytelling in the Bible?

An original work on the way the Biblical story is told   Nov 12, 2004
Toward the conclusion of the book Jacob Licht writes"I confess that I like clarity of thought and style, the historian's honest struggle with the factual and ideological difficulties of his material , as well as the storyteller's sense of balance, avoidance of unnecessary ornament and carefully concealed craftsmanship.These qualities, are to my mind, the secret of the greatness of Old Testament prose.(pp.149)
This book is a clearly written examination of the techniques used by the Biblical storyteller.
