Fresh insight into the Bible, 10 Feb. 2001
I have been reading The Complete Jewish Bible over the past 6 months. I am really enjoying it. At last, version of Bible in which the characters step out of the pages and in to the mind of the reader. I feel as if I have met Job, Jeremiah, Ruth, Paul, John and naturally Jesus.
The type setting allows the reader to see immediately what is poetry and what is narrative, quotations from other parts of scripture are clearly indicated thus making the text easy to read and understand.
This book is a must for those who are trying to understand the Jewish background to the Christian faith and offers fresh insight into many biblical texts and is open to all
