In three of the Bible’s most compelling short stories, Eugene F. Roop draws attention to the distinctive narrative characteristics of these magnificent dramas. Such scrutiny opens new vistas of interpretation that can undergird the faith, life, and neighborly relations of the church. As we enter the world of these struggles and events, we will experience in the stories sorrow and laughter, hope and loyalty, and God’s mercy and grace.
"The editors of this handsome series did well to select Eugene Roop to interpret these three exquisite biblical narratives, for Roop is precisely the kind of sensitive and discerning commentator who attends tot he literature in all its artistic depth and subtlety. Roop is well grounded in good interpretive method, and writes in clear and accessible ways that lets the text draw close to church readers." —Walter Brueggemann, Columbia Theological Seminary, Decatur, Georgia
