Holy Writ As Oral Lit: The Bible As Folklore

Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, Incorporated, 1999
With great reverence for the Bible, Dundes offers a new and exciting way to resolve some of the mysteries and contradictions that evolved during the Bible's pre-written legacy and that still persist today. Using his expert knowledge of folklore, Dundes unearths and contrasts multiple versions of nearly every major biblical event, including the creation of woman, the flood, the ten commandments, the Sermon on the Mount, the Lord's Prayer, and the inscription on the Cross.
