Harold Fisch explores the biblical influence on the style and structure of landmark works by Fielding, Defoe, George Eliot, Kafka, Dostoevsky and others. Whilst the great novelists could not manage without the Bible, at the same time 'it would not do'. The book concludes with two chapters on the Israeli novelists S.Y. Agnon and A.B. Yehoshua.
