Abstract:

Interpreting the Historical Books begins by exploring the components of narrative- setting, characterization, and plot-and then develops the major theological themes in each of the Old Testament historical books. As readers work through Interpreting the Historical Books, they will begin to see and interpret the narrative writings as the writings were intended to be understood. Samples of moving from exegesis to proclamation and a glossary of technical words makes this handbook practical and user-friendly.
