Rather than trying to pull the mask off the Hebrew Bible to reveal something (a monster?) hidden underneath, what if you attended to the actual narrative of the Bible? What would you learn? Robert Alter’s groundbreaking The Art of Biblical Narrative attempts to do just that. Dr. Dru Johnson of The King’s College in NYC and ALI’s own Greek and Hebrew Fellow Tyler Foster join Jonathan and Ryan as we discuss how to read the Bible, Alter-style.
