Summary
There are many Jewish and early Christian texts which refer to dragons and the battle that God or his angels fight against them. The myth is easily ignored or sidelined on account of its strangeness - and partly on account of the way in which people who are interested in this mythology languish in its lurid images. However, Andy Angel argues that some ancients had a far richer language for exploring their spiritual lives partly because they were willing to use and explore this language. Somehow this language has helped different people over many years to find a way of expressing their thoughts and feelings about living with suffering and God. 'Playing with Dragons' explores this language and specifically looks at the mythology of dragons and their demonic counterparts in Jewish and Christian literature from around 1000 BC to AD 300
