Publisher's Summary

"Why would a loving God make the whole human race suffer just because Adam took one bite of the apple?" "Wasn't it cruel of God to ask Abraham to sacrifice Isaac in the first place?" "I think the vineyard workers who worked all day should have been paid more."

These questions and observations reflect some of the basic misunderstandings about the Bible caused by not knowing its literary forms. And God Said What? introduces the listener to the importance of understanding the various literary forms that appear in Scripture: myth, legend, debate, fiction, Gospel, parable, allegory, letters, and revelation, psalms, the infancy narrative, and miracle stories. Each genre is clearly defined, and the importance of understanding the characteristics of each form to find meaning is explored in relation to many well-known biblical passages: "Samson", "Lot's wife", "Jonah", "puzzling parables", "666", and many more.
