Product description

Looks at ways in which stories are presented and understood; and how story-tellers - and their listeners - may wittingly or unwittingly confuse fact with fiction. This book explores the parallels between four stories (the Trojan war, Moses, King Arthur, and Jesus), and the way their sources relate to their histories and contemporary relevance.

Review quote

"The book is most suited to people who are surprised by the complexities of literary and historical study, especially when it comes to the distant past, where evidence is all too scarce.--The Very Revd Dr Lewis "Church Times "
