Noted biblical scholar Uriel Simon undertakes a systematic study of prophetic narratives in the Bible. He focuses on seven stories (including Samuel's call to prophecy, Saul at Endor, and David and Bathsheba), analyzing their form and structure, their rhetorical devices, their descriptions of character and motive, their narrative techniques -- in short, on the ways in which the stories are told.
