1 - 2 weeks availability
The world of the Bible is a textual world. Its composition and intertextuality are what make it a representation of reality. To understand biblical world making, it is important to understand how biblical books are made and read. The Textual World of the Bible explores the patterns of figuration in biblical composition and the way in which these patterns are read within the Bible (inner-biblical exegesis). This book is an excellent choice for courses in biblical theology and hermeneutics.
Michael B. Shepherd received his PhD in Old Testament studies from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. He is Assistant Professor of Old Testament and Hebrew at Louisiana College and the Caskey School of Divinity and holder of the John & Allie Fogleman Professorship in Religion.
