An examination of the literary and theological dynamics of the divine-human encounter as reflected in theophany narratives in the Hebrew Bible. The point of departure for this study is a type-scene analysis which reveals a common structure to theophany narratives. Beginning with the separation of the protagonist from human society, the text moves to a visual and verbal revelation by the Deity, and records a range of human reactions to the experience. Each of the texts concludes with a description of a more externalized reaction, which marks the carrying over of the experience into a larger societal framework.

The analysis develops the underlying structural and contentual similarity among texts which have traditionally been understood as belonging to different literary genres. The discussion offers a nuanced treatment of the range of literary strategies employed by the narrative for addressing these elements.

In addition to a detailed analysis of each of the above components of the type-scene, there is discussion of issues such as the idea of the lethal nature of the encounter and intertextual relations between the narratives.

About the Author:

Andrew Mein is Tutor in Old Testament, Westcott House, Cambridge.

Review:

"...Savran's analysis of theophanic narratives represent carefully reasoned and well-articulated scholarship that advances our understading of divine-human relationships within the Hebrew Bible. No study of theophany narratives is complete without taking this significant work into account."- Steven C. Horine, Vol. 49, no. 2 (Journal Of The Evangelical Theological Society)

'The literary analysis is most enlightening...Savran writes clearly and logically, sharing helpful, fascinating insights into plot and character development....I...would recommend it to others interested in a detailed narrative portrayal and character study of the recipients of theophany.'James A. Borland, Themelios, 32/1 (James A. Borland, Liberty University, USA Themelios)
