Literary Form and Meaning in the Hebrew Bible

Hosted By: Oxford Interfaith Forum

The Art of Biblical Narrative is a 1981 book by Robert Alter in which he outlines a literary approach to the Hebrew Bible. He proposes that “the Bible in its final form constitutes an artistic document with a full texture of interconnected unity.”

The Art of Biblical Narrative has been very influential. It revolutionized the way that scholars read the Bible.
