Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The standard edition — affordably priced for daily use and study — of the book that has been acclaimed as the single most important English translation of the Old Testament.

"The Five Books of Moses is...a binding religious text, a historical document of the first importance, and a work of great literary imagination". — Edward Hirsch, New York Times Book Review

"Fox's translation has the rare virtue of making constantly visible in English the distinctive Hebraic quality of the original, challenging preconceptions of what the Bible is really like. A bracing protest against the bland modernity of all the recent English versions of the Bible". — Robert Alter, University of California, Berkeley

"No serious Bible reader — whether Jewish, Christian, or secular — can afford to ignore this volume". — Jon D. Levenson, Harvard Divinity School

Synopsis:

Widely acclaimed by Bible scholars and theologians of every denomination, Everett Fox's masterful translation re-creates the echoes, allusions, alliterations, and wordplays of the Hebrew original. Together with its extensive commentary and illuminating notes, this unique translation draws the reader closer to the authentic living voice of the Bible
