He looks on how they are written, what their symmetries and patterns are.
How is the 'plot' advanced? How are names and descriptions used? How do Bible writers draw characters? How does typology work? These and other literary questions are asked using stories from the Old and New Testaments. For example, stories about Abraham and Jacob, the parables of Jesus and the typology of Genesis are examined.
The book will introduce readers to the artistic craft that can be seen in Bible narrative.
