Free Logos Book of the Month March

This month Logos is giving away How Bible Stories Work: A Guided Study of Biblical Narrative (Reading the Bible As Literature) by Leland Ryken. When I was at Wheaton I took a class from professor Ryken on the Bible as Literature. It wonderfully brought to life the imagery of the scriptures.

This short book covers,
  • "Getting the Most Out of Biblical Narrative
  • The Subject of Every Story: The Embodiment of Universal Human Experience
  • Setting in Bible Stories: Seeing the Particulars
  • Characterization in Bible Stories (Part 1): How Writers Do It
  • Characterization in Bible Stories (Part 2): What Readers Need to Do
  • Plot Structure and Unity: The Beginning, Middle, and Ending of Each Story
  • Plot Devices: How Storytellers Tell Their Story with Beauty and Skill
  • Hero Stories: A Neglected but Fruitful Narrative Genre
  • From Story to Meaning: How to Find Significance in a Narrative Text"
Leland Ryken "(Ph.D., University of Oregon) is Professor of English Emeritus at Wheaton College, where he has taught since 1968. He is the author of more than 50 books" such as Words of Delight: A Literary Introduction to the Bible, Windows to the World: Literature in Christian Perspective, and A Complete Handbook of Literary Forms in the Bible."
