Style and Literary Devices
"The book of Genesis continues to fascinate believers and nonbelievers alike. Scores of commentaries have been written upon this work, demonstrating that its contents present topics and raise issues that humanity considers perennial. This ancient text arguable received more discussion than any other biblical book. Genesis 1-11 presents a "coherent anthropology" with insights into the problematic character of human reason, speech, freedom, sexual desire, love of the beautiful, pride, shame, anger, guilt, death,etc. In these chapters, Gensis, quintessentially a book about beginnings, is not so much about what happened as what always happens!"
"The most brilliant pessimistic tract of all time, a dense mix of prose and poetry, the recurrent reminder that all is mist, and the idea of God, play out in multiple potential ways in the text, and how they connect with what is not amibiguous in it: the repeated insistence that out ridiculous "I," our experience of life's vain windy-soulful mistiness, and the puppetmaster we call God, together constitute an invitation to enjoy oursleves. The Preacher offers no positive alternative or hope and any seemingly positive statement must be explained away as a superficial reading. This can lead to strained exposition in which the author emends or forces the text to fit his conclusions."

Please refrain from asking controversial questions that would lead to religious debates. This project is viewing
as a piece of literature, not religious history.
"The bibliography provided for each parable is useful and representative. One of the problems in dealing with the Matthean parables is the extent of the literature, and it is a feature of this study of the Matthean parables that it has mastered and used such a good range of secondary material."
