In this introduction to Scripture, Leland Ryken organizes biblical passages into literary genres including narratives, poetry, proverbs, and drama, demonstrating that knowledge of a genre’s characteristics enriches one’s understanding of individual passages. He offers a volume brimming over with wonderful insights into Old and New Testament books and passages–insights that have escaped most traditional commentators.
