Product description


Praise for The Bible's Cutting Room Floor A wonderful book to confirm the beliefs of the faithful, to strengthen those whose faith begs for more information and to enlighten those who reject the stories of the Bible as mere fiction. --Kirkus Reviews An engrossing gift for amateur bible students. --Booklist Praise for And God Said A lively tour of the difficulties besetting the Bible's translators, their successes and (more frequent) failures.--Jewish Ideas Daily Deeply welcome as a valuable tool for teaching well-worth acquiring. Jewish Book World [Hoffman] unites biblical scholarship and translation theory, embracing modern science and modern linguistics, to help us understand what the prophets and our forebears were doing and how they wrote. He retrieves what the Bible really was and what it can be for us now. The Very Reverend James A. Kowalski, The Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine A wise and important book, and a lot of fun to read. Rabbi Harold Kushner, author of When Bad Things Happen to Good People Hoffman is wise and gentle as he exhibits the issue of distortion by way of translation. Short of all readers learning Hebrew, Hoffman's work is the best gift for a careful reader of a text that defies easy contemporary rendering. Walter Brueggemann, author of The Prophetic Imagination Praise for In the Beginning Hoffman has a flair for explaining how languages work. The Times Literary Supplement (London) Written in an energetic style with a commitment to exploring the evolution of Hebrew from ancient times to the present in ways that a broad audience can comprehend. --Various
