Jan Fokkelman
Reading Biblical Narrative
A Practical Guide

(Translated by Ineke Smit)

This is an enormously instructive and practical hands-on introduction for students of the Bible as literature, by one of the world’s leading exponents of Hebrew narrative technique. Issues covered include: introduction to the art of reading, the narrator and his characters, narrative structure, narrative devices.

“An easy to read but thorough introduction to the subject of narrative criticism as a means of biblical exegesis … a very useful book” – Theological Book Review

“This book is valuable for both students and professionals. It is clearly written and abundantly illustrated. F.’s thorough schooling in the languages and history of the ancient Near East make his arguments for the primacy of the text’s literary qualities strong and persuasive.” – Catholic Biblical Quarterly

“Securely anchored in the biblical text from beginning to end, this is both an admirable book for the novice and a source of many pleasures for the professional scholar”– David M. Gunn

“This book should prove valuable to any student of biblical studies, and the worked examples to tutors and Bible study leaders alike” – H.A. McKay, JSOT

“An excellent and enjoyable guide” – I.J.J. Spangenberg, Religion & Theology

Jan Fokkelman is an international expert in Semitic languages and emeritus professor of Classical Hebrew Literature at the University of Leiden, the Netherlands. He is the author of many books, including The Psalms in Form, also published by Deo Publishing.

Jan Fokkelman
The Psalms in Form
The Hebrew Psalter in its Poetic Shape

A formidable and invaluable working tool for those working with the text of Psalms or with Hebrew poetry.

The Hebrew text of the Psalms is here set out in a unique way – generally one psalm to each large-format (A4) page – to show their poetic shape and structure, in couplets, triptychs and strophes. The visual impact of the layout tells its own striking story, demonstrating at a glance the skill and artistry with which the Psalms have been composed. With its introduction and notes in English, this book will be a standard tool for students, and it will have significant consequences for the scholarly interpretation of the Psalms.

“In the decisive process of clarifying divisions this elegant book sets a new standard” – T. Brodie, JSOT

“The quality of presentation and clarity of explanation in this volume should encourage many readers with only modest Hebrew to ‘keep at it’” – Graeme Auld, Expository Times
