Story as Torah
By

Rating
How do the grand stories of Israel and her heroes, as well as the many seemingly mundane incidents found in these narrative stories, help guide today's readers in their daily behavior? Renowned scholar Gordon Wenham offers Story as Torah, a succinct monograph demonstrating how Old Testament narratives can indeed function as "Torah," informing one's ethical choices. He uses the books of Genesis and Judges as test cases, working with texts that offer clear moral guidance as well as those in which the ethical teaching is at first glance dubious. This accessible book will help seminarians, pastors, and other students of the Bible use Old Testament narratives responsibly.
