5.0 out of 5 stars Good Buy, 9 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: How to Read the Bible: A Guide to Scripture, Then and Now (Paperback)
This is a brilliantly written book, making a complex subject seem interesting. It reads almost like a novel. I couldn't put it down.

5.0 out of 5 stars ... wrestled with theological questions all my life I was delighted to read this book, 13 July 2014
This review is from: How to Read the Bible: A Guide to Scripture, Then and Now (Paperback)
Having wrestled with theological questions all my life I was delighted to read this book .While reading you know you are in the hands of a real expert who while himself is an orthodox jew does not duck from the hard facts .Someone reviewed on here that they still have questions having read the book....well the author doesnt have loads of answers but he does make you think....the result of a good teacher.When reading such a book one often reads with a hand on the comfort rail that is the rail of previous secure beliefs that one is frightened of letting go of ....my counsel is relax and let him speak to you ....you will not be disappointed .

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent guide to the Old Testament, 3 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: How to Read the Bible: A Guide to Scripture, Then and Now (Paperback)
Somewhat to my surprise (I'm neither a Jew nor a Christian), this book is a great read. While being erudite it is written is a down-to-earth yet never less than interesting style which makes it a pleasure to dip into (or indeed read from cover to cover). It should be required reading for all idiot fundamentalists who think that a "holy" book can be read literally. The author makes no secret of the fact that he is a believing Jew, but this does not stop him from advancing a wide range of theories about the background of all the most important themes and stories in the Old Testament - be warned it does not, for obvious authorial reasons cover the New Testament.
