About The Book

The Old Testament contains a number of interesting poetic references to Gods conflict with a dragon called by names such as Leviathan Rahab or the twisting serpent and with the sea. In this original contribution to the background and understanding of the Old Testament Dr Day undertakes a detailed and thorough examination of these allusions. Building on the discovery of the Ugaritic texts he demonstrates a source for these references within Canaanite mythology. His study further explores the associations of the imagery. Sometimes in the Old Testament the dragon is associated with the creation of the world or it becomes a symbol of a foreign nation and in some references it is associated with divine conflict at the end of time.
