    The Bible is full of different styles of writing - called genres. We find some of them easier to read than others, but all of them have their own unique qualities, uses, and potential points of misunderstanding. In this special 6-week series, David Bowden is sitting down with Dr. Sam Storms to talk about six different genres of literature in the Bible and how we should read them.

    In this episode, Sam Storms and David Bowden talk about the Biblical genre of Narrative. Are stories in the Bible descriptive or prescriptive? Meaning, how can we and should we draw moral and theological principals from stories in the Bible?

    The book of Deuteronomy sets before God's people blessings and curses based on their obedience or disobedience. However, the curses seem to be stated in such a way that they seem inevitable.

Let's go!
