""Kang provides a clear and satisfying integration of type-scene analysis with the development of characterization, plot, and theme, in order to place the three episodes of the endangered matriarch within the narrative arch of Genesis 12-26. As a bonus, the reader enjoys a concise introduction with balanced assessment of the macrostructure of Genesis as a whole!""
--John W. Hilber, Professor of Old Testament, Grand Rapids Theological Seminary
""The so-called wife/sister narratives in Genesis have been the focus of numerous compositional studies throughout the period of modern critical scholarship. Dr. Hwagu Kang has produced a very important work that utilizes a text linguistic and type-scene analysis in order to provide significant insights into these stories. Kang's methodological approach uncovers numerous interconnections and subtle differences within these texts and the way that they have been composed that have often been overlooked by scholars. Moreover, his volume naturally contributes to the larger question of the use and development of type-scenes in both the Old and New Testaments.""
