An introduction and translation of Tobit, one of the books of the Old Testament Apocrypha, which is set in Israel and Persia. It is a family drama with a fairy‐tale‐like quality; the characters are beset by evil demons and protected by angels who perform miracles in human guise. It also includes interesting references to Jewish customs.
