    With this book John Dancy has set out to restore the Old Testament to 'the reading list of the general educated public' by selecting sections of the text for their artistic merit and intrinsic interest. These dramatic narratives and the heightened speech of Hebrew poetry are accompanied by Dancy's commentary, which concentrates on literary matters and provides parallels with other ancient Near Eastern and Greek texts, as well as highlighting features of Hebrew language and story-telling techniques.
