    "Satire and Symbolism in the song of Jonah," in Traditions in Transformation: Turning Points in Biblical Faith, (Frank Moore Cross Festschrift, No. 1) ed. By J.D. Levenson and B. Halpern (Eisenbraun’s ), pp. "Joseph, Judah and Jacob," in Literary Interpretations of Biblical Narratives, Vol.2, ed. Reading Biblical Narratives: Literary Criticism and the Hebrew Bible. Translated by Yael Lotan. Minneapolis: Fortress, Provides short, accessible treatments of such topics as the power of stories, the role of the reader, and patterned scene structures.

    A quick look at the biblical-interpretation section in any college library will immediately show that biblical scholars read the Hebrew Bible in a variety of ways. What most scholars have in common, though, is that they avoid overtly doctrinal readings based on the idea that the Bible is the “word of God” because such interpretations are based on faith claims that are inherently unprovable.   The Hebrew Bible is not a book of systematic theology (i.e., an account of the divine) delivering eternally true pronouncements on theological issues, despite the fact that at a much later time, complex systems of theology would be spun from particular interpretations of biblical passages.

    It is pleasing to see the often-ignored contribution of OT stories to biblical ethics given pre-eminence in this new book by Mary Mills. Mills organises her book around a very helpful three-layered model that aims to open up the interlocking dimensions of person/character, community and cosmos in biblical narratives in order to cash out their ethical value. The book explores the three levels. After a long career in biblical scholarship, he recently issued a new translation of the Hebrew Bible to wide acclaim. This little book is, in several ways, a precursor to that momentous effort. Viewing the Hebrew Bible as a literary effort, instead of a legal or evangelical one, was gaining wide acceptance when this book was published.
