MEDIA REVIEWS

"A long time ago, I projected a book on biblical poetry that found its expression in "The Root of the Thing: A Study of Job and the Song of Songs. "Intermittently, I wrote about other parts of the Bible: about Pentateuchal narrative... and about historigraphic assumptions underlying biblical practice. . . . I [also] set the biblical practice of poetry into a larger context of comparable poetry with some religious orientation. Here I turn, finally, to the tonic range of biblical prophecy and to its burden, a word that has been adapted into English to mean the kind of message that the biblical prophet conceived himself to be uttering."Albert Cook, from the Introduction"
