520    "The essays in this volume explore facets of ongoing 
       research into the interplay of history, fiction, and 
       narrative in ancient Greco-Roman, Jewish, and Christian 
       texts. Particular attention is given to the way in which 
       ancient authors in a variety of genre and cultural 
       settings employ a range of narrative strategies to reflect
       on pressing contemporary issues, shape community identity,
       or provide moral and educational guidance for their 
       readers. This volume, the third in a series of volumes of 
       collected papers emerging from the work of the "Ancient 
       Fictions and Early Christian and Jewish Narrative" section
       of the Society for Biblical Literature since its formation
       in 1992, is the first to highlight the growing importance 
       of strategies to integrate the fruits of this research 
       into the university classroom and beyond"--|cProvided by
