Description

Pomegranate Gospel offers both humorous and heartfelt commentary through a variety of styles and forms-memoirs, literary analysis, epistles, narratives, engagements with the visual arts-that keep the reader a little off-balance to open a new awareness of the Bible's secular richness. Many obstacles prevent us from approaching the Bible as literary text, yet when these are removed, we find a surprising, hilarious, and deeply meaningful book.

About the Author(s)/Editor(s)/Translator(s): 

With forty years of experience teaching college literature courses, as well as art history and studio art, Gary Hoffman is well positioned to unravel the literary treasures of the Bible. By offering both humorous and heartfelt commentary through a variety of styles and forms—memoirs, literary analysis, epistles, Q&As, narratives, engagements with the visual arts—Hoffman keeps us a little off-balance to bring us into a new awareness of the Bible’s secular richness.
