"This is a little gem, written accessibly with clarity and humor: a welcome relief from the flat and monochrome reading that often passes as 'the plain sense of Scripture,' particularly in popular debate. It reminds readers of a Christian tradition that is far more sophisticated, challenging, and ultimately satisfying,"---The Tablet (U.K.). 224 pages, softcover. T. & T. Clark.
