Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
This work provides profiles, ranging in length from a sentence to several pages, of some 450 biblical characters. It is unusual in discussing the literature, visual arts, and music associated with many of these characters. Writing with a typically British grace, the author feels free to express his informed, though often acerbic opinions, especially with reference to the artistic works discussed. Entries include cross- and biblical references. Appropriate for most libraries. Richard S. Watts, San Bernardino Cty. Lib., Cal.
