Summary The books of the Old Testament are often thought of as being remote and 'primitive'. In fact, they were written by learned men, educated in the traditional schools of ancient Israel. This book presents a case for the strong influence which this schooling must have had on the writers of the stories, poetry and proverbs of the Bible
