I was pleased to receive another review book in the mail today. This time it was Bryan Cribb and Daniel Block’s Speaking on the Brink of Sheol: Form and Message of Old Testament Death Stories, compliments of the fine folks at Gorgias Press.
From the back cover:
“Using a synchronic and inductive approach to the text, Cribb engages in a form critical study of nine ‘death stories’ in the Old Testament. In so doing, he not only provides substantial support for the existence of this genre, which hitherto has not been identified by form critics, but he also shows how remarkably fruitful such a study can be in revealing the messages of these accounts.”
Review to come!
