about

Renowned biblical sleuth and scholar Richard Elliot Friedman reveals the first work of prose literature in the world-a 3000-year-old epic hidden within the books of the Hebrew Bible. Written by a single, masterful author but obscured by ancient editors and lost for millennia, this brilliant epic of love, deception, war, and redemption is a compelling account of humankind's complex relationship with God. Friedman boldly restores this prose masterpiece-the very heart of the Bible-to the extraordinary form in which it was originally written.

From Our Editors

Renowned scholar and translator Richard Elliot Friedman has discovered the oldest work of prose literature in the world… hidden directly in the pages of the Old Testament itself. The Hidden Book in the Bible is a 3,000 year-old narrative that previous Biblical writers and editors have obscured. This revived text breathes freshness and life into the ancient work, offering a provocatively captivating tale from the earliest roots of Western culture. Biblical scholars, students and lay readers alike will enjoy the marvellous research of this book, certain to renew interest in Bible studies. 

Editorial Reviews

"[Friedman's] work is poised to produce one of those once-in-a-generation breakthroughs, after which the field of study can never look the same again." (H. G. M. Williamson, Regius Professor of Hebrew, Oxford University)
