Review:

"It seems to me that in regard to its level there is nothing which can equal it in the entire scholarly literature in this field."

The arguments in these chapters are well-balanced and lucid; a good rhythm of theory and practice ensures a constant stream of to-the-point observation on style, material, and disposition. Jan P. Fokkelman--Jan P. Fokkelman

It seems to me that in regard to its level there is nothing which can equal it in the entire scholarly literature in this field. Uriel Simon--Uriel Simon

"Bar-Efrat's...book is relatively free of such technical jargon, and when these terms do appear, they are simply and clearly explained.....the book is particularly useful to introduce those who may already be somewhat familiar with the Bible to basic concepts involved in reading it as narrative, although they are left hanging if they want to pursue such concepts much further....his narratological insights remain valuable, and his own writing style is accessible to a wide range of readers."- George Aichele, "The Bible and Critical Theory, "Vol. 1, Number 3, 2005

About the Author:

Dr. Bar-Efra is Head of Biblical Studies at the Hebrew University Secondary School, Jerusalem.
