In recent decades scholarly study of the Bible has taken a literary turn. Now literary theory has taken its place at the hermeneutical table and demands a voice in the conversation. Words and the Word, edited by David Firth and Jamie A. Grant, offers eight informative and stimulating essays that will bring readers abreast of this conversation. This volume's contributors are united in their belief that a proper understanding of key aspects of literary theory can make a significant contribution to biblical interpretation. Their essays survey general issues in the field, take a look at some specific approaches, and outline the relevance and contribution these make to the task of biblical interpretation. Students of biblical interpretation who have moved beyond the basics will find Words and the Word to be a wonderful introduction to the major ideas, methods and thinkers in literary interpretation of the Bible.
