KIER8, July 15, 2008 (view all comments by KIER8)
Reading the Five Books of Moses Schoken Bible Volume 1 is a refreshing experience. Everett Fox is Professor of Judaic Studies and the Bible at Clarke University but this translation is not a dry academic work. It preserves much of the alliteration, poetry, puns, and word play of the Hebrew text. No wonder why scholars and clergy of all denominations have praised Fox's work.
