This is the last of a six-volume series called Reading the Bible as Literature. In this series, the author not only explores the intersection of the Bible and literature, but he also shows pastors, students, and teachers of the Bible the beautiful craftsmanship of Proverbs and wisdom literature and how to interpret them correctly. Dr. Ryken goes one step further than merely explaining the genre of Proverbs and wisdom literature by including exercises to help students master this rich literary treasure.
Leland Ryken (PhD, University of Oregon) is professor of English emeritus at Wheaton College, where he has taught since 1968. He is the author of more than fifty books, including How to Read the Bible as Literature (Zondervan), Words of Delight: A Literary Introduction to the Bible (Baker), Windows to the World: Literature in Christian Perspective (Wipf & Stock), Effective Bible Teaching (Baker), A Complete Handbook of Literary Forms in the Bible (Crossway), and co-editor of Dictionary of Biblical Imagery (IVP).
