Review 2 for Cracking Old Testament Codes: A Guide to Interpreting the Literary Genres of the Old Testament
Date:May 3, 2010
Its content is exactly what I was looking for. General discussion about the literary forms of the OT, its relation with conservative view about the Bible as the Word of God; the use of Literary forms by teachers and preachers (that's one of the things I needed more) and a specific discussion of most common forms with examples. Th only reason is not getting 5 is because of some printing errors (like page 126)
