The basic layout of each chapter is clear and helpfuland the 'Questions for Discussion' are sharp and should focusreading appropriately. In short, this is a very useful workhorse ofa book, a way into the riches of literature and a careful guide tothe difficult field of literature and theology." David Jasper,Theology

"The provision of clear and succinct introductory summaries ofthe historical and social context to which writers belonged shouldprove of considerable worth." The Expository Times

Helpful contextualising and interpretive introductionsto each period and each text, along with study and discussionquestions, render the collection reader friendly." ReligiousStudies Review
