Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"This book...is designed to make the Bible of Israel intelligible, relevant, and hopefully, inspiring to a sophisticated generation, possessed of intellectual curiosity and ethical sensitivity...It is based on the belief that the study of the Book of Books must constitute a mature intellectual challenge, an exposure to the expanding universe of scientific biblical scholarship...Far from presenting a threat to faith, a challenge to the intellect may reinforce faith and purify it."--from the Introduction

If you are like me in that you want to understand the Bible in the light of history, then " Understanding Genesis" by Brandeis University Professor of Biblical Studies Nachum Sarna is a must read. As in his other works [Understanding Exodus" and "On the Book of Psalms"] Dr. Sarna clearly translates and explains the Biblical text and its context.
