After setting out the foundation of his argument for ideological reading, he examines several passages and topics in the Old Testament. He covers the Ten Commandments, the Temple, the Prophets, the book of Job, the Pentateuch, and David. Clines focuses on interpretation as well as evaluation of the text in question.
