Many stories and characters of the Bible are familiar in a general way to readers of literature, but few of us know the Bible in sufficient detail to recognize, let alone understand, many of the Biblical allusions common in our language and literature. The purpose of this book is to help the intelligent reader in two ways: first, to locate an allusion in the Bible itself; and, second, to understand the allusion's meaning and use in literature. --- excerpt from book's Preface
