Episode 8: (Part 2) How Literary Genre Unlocks Meaning w/ Jeannine Brown

Understanding biblical genres (poetry, narrative, letter, etc.) strikes many people as too boring or too academic to prioritize. But the authors chose these genres for a reason, and knowing how to read them can make all the difference.

“The way we’ve read the Bible is very much monochromatic – as if it’s all the same thing…I think we need to get past that.” Dr. Jeannine Brown joins us to discuss the importance of understanding the different types of literature in the Bible, and how being attuned to literature can unlock the Bible in “full color.” Part 2 of our interview with Dr. Brown.
