"Andersson critically examines self-styled literary or narrative readings of the Old Testament historical books, mainly the books of Samuel. He identifies theoretical issues or groups of theoretical problems that emerge in a trialogue between the biblical texts, their interpreters, and theories of literature and narrative assumed to be guiding the readings. The framework for his analysis is a series of suggested interpretations, where he finds the matters under discussion most visible. He covers poetics and interpretation, the sense-governing intent of biblical narrative, storytelling sense and reference, and narrators and perspective as two nodes." -Eithne O'Leyne, BOOK NEWS, Inc.
