God as an Absent Character in Biblical Hebrew Narrative

A Literary-Theoretical Study

€ 83.55


Although the Hebrew Bible as a whole is centered on God and God`s relations with Israel, the character of God appears in most biblical stories only indirectly. How are modern readers to make sense of this paradox? God as an Absent Character in Biblical Hebrew Narrative establishes a set of literary methods that both academic and non-academic readers can use to understand the character of God, who is the single most important character in Hebrew Bible narrative and, strangely, absent from the majority of it.
