Moses is not only inseparable from biblical tradition, he is an inherently ambiguous figure and often a perennial focus of controversy. Brian Britt traces the development of biblical and post-biblical traditions about Moses by analyzing elements of polemic and ideology in the Moses of the Bible and in scholarly writings, as well as the Moses depicted in film, novels, and visual art. He is able to effectively integrate literary criticism with historical criticism.
