Genesis, with an Introduction to Narrative Literature

Front Cover
Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing, 1983 - Religion - 322 pages
In the introduction to this volume, George Coats discusses narrative in general and the principal Old Testament narratives in particular. He then sets the book of Genesis in its larger Old Testament context, analyzing its major sections and subsections. Each of the succeeding chapters treats one of the major sections. A bibliography heads each chapter, and a shorter bibliography of relevant works appears at the end of each unit. The book concludes with genre and formula files, which list all the relevant genres and formulas and the texts in which they occur.
