Literary Typing

Verbum supports two literary genre systems:

  • Longacre genre
  • Tooman-Mackie genre

It is the latter which is covered by the Literary typing guide section.

From Verbum Help:

Literary Typing Section

This section places the guide passage within a literary genre, with the passage broken down by book, chapter, and verse. Passages are hyperlinks to the relevant portion of Scripture, and literary types are links to a definition of that type in the Lexham Glossary of Literary Types.[1]

 

Prerequisite reading: Mangum, Douglas. The Lexham Glossary of Literary Types. Bellingham, WA: Lexham Press, 2014.

Resources included: Bibles with a reverse interlinear

It is easy to simply read the definitions of genres without stopping to consider the impact of the genre on the text. If you are as guilty of this as I am, I suggest reading some resources that implement genre as an interpretative tool:

  • Dorothy, Charles V. The Books of Esther: Structure, Genre and Textual Integrity. Vol. 187. Journal for the Study of the Old Testament Supplement Series. Sheffield: Sheffield Academic Press, 1997.
  • Nasuti, Harry P. Defining the Sacred Songs: Genre, Tradition, and the Post-Critical Interpretation of the Psalms. Vol. 218. Journal for the Study of the Old Testament Supplement Series. Sheffield: Sheffield Academic Press, 1999.
  • Bale, Alan J. Genre and Narrative Coherence in the Acts of the Apostles. Edited by Chris Keith. Vol. 514. Library of New Testament Studies. London; New Delhi; New York; Sydney: Bloomsbury T&T Clark; Bloomsbury, 2015.
  • Cheung, Luke Leuk. The Genre, Composition and Hermeneutics of the Epistle of James. Milton Keynes: Paternoster Press, 2003.
  • Gunn, D. M. The Story of King David: Genre and Interpretation. Vol. 6. Journal for the Study of the Old Testament Supplement Series. Sheffield: JSOT Press, 1989.
  • Smith, Justin Marc. Why Βίος?: On the Relationship between Gospel Genre and Implied Audience. Edited by Chris Keith. Vol. 518. Library of New Testament Studies. London; New Delhi; New York; Sydney: Bloomsbury, 2015.

Section heading bar

There are no settings or save options for Literary Typing. Therefore, both the section heading bar and its menu are the minimal default.
