Sex, wives, and Warriors: Reading the Old Testament Narrative with its Ancient Audience, By Philipp Esler, ISBN: 9780227679913

“These stories offer readers an almost esthetic pleasure to enter an imaginative world which, whilst distant in terms of time and contemporaneity, can be established in the setting of ancient Israel using ethnographic evidence. It is in this context that Esler offers us a fresh historical and literary review of the Old Testament narratives. This is a thoroughly enjoyable and exhaustive book that illuminates and brings new life an ancient narrative using socio-scientific methods that can no longer be ignored if scholarship is to glean a true insight into the content and context of the Old Testament.”
