Description

In January I published a book called "The Internal Conversation of the Old Testament." The book demonstrates that the literature in the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament is a combination of many voices, contending with one another over issues and questions important to ancient Israelites. Versions of many of these questions are still central to the lives of modern human communities. My lead example of a composite text is the combination of three different stories about how Saul became the first king of ancient Israel. I will use this example to demonstrate how to listen to a composite text, then illustrate some of the important questions such readings can help us consider.
