Doak explores how the giants of the Hebrew Bible which represent a connection to primeval chaos offer insight into central aspects of Israel s symbolic universe. By placing biblical traditions within a broader Mediterranean context regarding giants and the end of the heroic age, Doak sheds new light on monotheism and monarchy in ancient Israel."
