"The 4th edition is the single most useful guide for the undergraduate student to a study of the literature of the old New Testaments, emphasizing critical analysis and forms."--Iris Rozencwajg, Houston Community College
"A very good book. It is a good general text. My class in OT literature used it along with other readings a year ago and found it helpful. (Since I teach separate OT and NT courses I'd prefer separate texts.)"--Grace C. Cooper, University of D.C.
Praise for the previous edition (1st 2 quotes): "I am impressed once again with the logic of the organization, the clarity of the writing, and the wonderful balance. The Bible as Literature is still the best introduction to the subject on the market."--David Hirsch, Professor of English and Judaic Studies, Brown University
"Gabel, Wheeler, and York do an excellent job. They not only provide textual evidence to support their analytical discussion, but also often provide the context and synopsis of the passage--a technique that is key to making the text work with students who are simultaneously reading the Bible for the first time. Accessibility, scholarship, and logical organization make this text easy and worthy to integrate with a course."--Ken Paul Novak, United States Air Force Academy

the Bible and the Qur'an as Literature, it may be too detailed and includes a number of topics (chapters)
that are not relevant to the Qur'an comparison. If the Course were just an Introduction to "The Bible As Literature"
I believe this would be the book I would select.
