Rook, a slightly different question for you...
While I was in college, I took Old Testament Literature and New Testament Literature courses. The textbooks used were "Reading the Old Testament" by Laurence Boadt, and "Reading the New Testament" by Pheme Perkins. Do you know anything about these texts? And can you suggest possibly more up-to-date reading material for bible study/biblical criticism issues?
Thanks in advance,
