Does anyone know anything about this; what it is, who this is? I know what Prose, etc., is but not some of the others. Example for 2 Kings under Passage Guides|Literary Typing below. I searched the web and the only place it shows is Logos or Libronix in connection with Tooman or Tooman Literary, etc.

Some of us (meaning me) have asked this question multiple times without getting an answer. Therefore, I am truly sorry I can't help you.Sad

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

The 'who' is easy enough to answer:

The series "Forms of the Old Testament Literature" has fairly detailed commentary on the genres that appear in each section with helpful pop-ups that define the genre terms with some precision. I do not know to what extent those genres line up with Tooman's analysis - I haven't tried comparing them yet, but if you're looking for more verbose commentary on genre issues, it'd be a good resource for you:

Pretty steep cost for what should be defined for Logos users. Maybe its time for a $2.00 Handbook to Tooman Typing. Ditto for the Mackie NT coding.

Thank you - that's further than I've gotten in the past. Now, about the New Testament? ...

And, no, FOTL has a much more precise system that is not particularly useful to the "average Joe/Jill in the pew"

I also have written asking for clarification on the meaning of these terms. A Glossary of  both Tooman and Mackie would be greatly appreciated.
