Forced Choices: OT Genre

In last week’s Forced Choice, Eastern Orthodoxy seriously trounced Catholicism with nearly two-thirds of the votes (64%). I may write a post sometime on why I think that is, but now it’s time to move on.

So, this week we’re going to jump back into the Bible and look at the major OT genres. As always, use whatever criteria you want to make your selection (e.g. you think one is more important, more fun to read, more interesting to study, whatever). And, you don’t have to leave a comment explaining your choice, but feel free to if you’d like.

  1. Hard choice. I almost want to recast my vote for law now. But as far as “fun to read”, gotta go with the prophecy.

  2. I’m doing the Penta now…and did the Wisdom books last year…loved the wisdom books more than I do the Penta. However I possibly enjoyed the minor prophets more so.
