The Bible is not a textbook or manual that uses wooden propositions that are always literal and bland. Scripture, however, is full of all different kinds of writing, speech, reports, emotions, commands, propositions, explanations, stories, and so forth.
Although this book is just over one hundred years old, it is a helpful tool for learning about the different figures of speech in Scripture.
