From the epic of Gideon's army to the tale of Samson and Delilah to the history of David's family and the disputes surrounding the succession to the throne, Mobley compares well-known Bible stories to ancient Semitic and European heroic traditions, exposes the elements they share, and demonstrates that these heroic elements were obscured by the theologically minded editors of the Bible.
