The author 'leads his readers through the Old Testament, dealing
with literary-critical and historical questions as he goes along,
always in search of the religious meaning of what is written, and of
its role in the developing story . . . He moves through his material
with the accustomed ease of the real scholar and the enthusiastic
teacher. His points are well taken, and his writing is
imaginative, perceptive, persuasive, and lively.
Journal of Biblical Literature
Napier expounds the theological ideas of the biblical writers
against their historical backgrounds. He packs a great deal of
helpful insight into his pages . . .
The special strength of Song of the Vineyard, the source
of its broad appeal, lies in its readable delineation of what is
essential, pertinent, and really significant in the biblical
text. Napier's constant focus on the Bible's meaning
subordinates purely technical matters and totally suppresses the
scholarly trivia and jargon which clutter many similar books.
