The Book of Ruth reads like a novel. Scholars agree on the literary virtuosity of its author but are deeply divided about the way she or he has structured the work. For the first time ever, "The Structure of the Book of Ruth" makes use of hitherto neglected evidence from ancient Hebrew, Greek, Syriac, and Latin manuscripts in an attempt to create a more objective basis for discussions about the book's structure. This type of structural analysis is a powerful new tool in the hands of Bible scholars. Structural irregularities appear to elucidate the redactional history of the Book of Ruth. Structural breaks and links appear to function as markers indicating a certain understanding of the text to the exclusion of other possibilities.Table of ContentsPrefaceThe Structure of the Book of RuthIntroductionPrevious Research--J.
