Review:


"Sandmel continues to have a simplicity and relevance that drives to the heart of the scripture. In doing so, neither critical issues nor theology are left aside."--Emmanuel School of Religion


"Tough, perceptive, and critical....Based on broad scholarship, it is non-technical and calculated to enable the lay reader to enjoy Scripture as an assemblage of great literature."--Reform Judaism


"[A] splendidly written introduction to the literature of the Hebrew Bible....A brilliant work--one from which all of us can learn."--The Christian Century


"Rich in its understanding of the symbolism, the literary development, and the spiritual significance of dominant motifs in the Old Testament."--Christianity Today
