The bible remains one of the major literary achievements of human history, comprising over 60 documents, with as many contributors, and composed over many centuries. In this book, Michael Fishbane approaches the "Hebrew Bible" from a literary point of view. He demonstrates how, just as orators use particular techniques, such as repetition and pause to convey their message in the way that they require, the "Hebrew Bible" authors used a range of literary devices to communicate a religious message applicable to particular historical moments, each with their own political, moral and theological contexts.
