Reading the Bible as literature provides a wealth of creative literary forms within the Bible itself-plot, characters, and implicit themes in the narratives: metaphor, rhythms, and imagery in the verse. Prof Gottcent places the work in historical context, then develops a contemporary critical evaluation of the Bible as an expression of culture, language and art. Gottcent's nonsectarian approach gives his criticism the impartial sensitivity and breadth of understanding essential to a literary analysis of the Bible.
