From Our Editors

Biblical scholarship becomes a fascinating subject for the general reader as well as for the serious student in this study of the literature of the Hebrew Scriptures. The author approaches the books of the Bible as a library of works that are narrative, prophetic, and historical as well as theological. The result is a work of impressive range and high interest for virtually every class of reader.

Editorial Reviews

"Superb in its critical analysis...and its full emphasis upon the deep religious insights that give a common core to many of the beliefs of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. [Sandmel's] paraphrases of many of the significant passages are excellent."--Lee A. Belford, New York University
