Getting Acquainted with the Old Testament
Session 22: Introduction to Poetry
Before we get into the next books themselves, here is a brief Introduction to the Books of Poetry and Wisdom. We identify the three main types of poetry found in this section of the Bible. And J.S. Baxter gives us a "spiritual progression" that can be seen in the content of these books.
