Product description

Review

Alan Segal's approach to myth is very illuminating for the "The Worst, Most Awful Stories of the Bible." To see how these stories reflect (and attempt to resolve) contradictions -- moral, social, gender -- is salutary and fresh. Segal was one of our finest thinkers about the legacy of ancient Judaism for modern thought. This book, his last contribution, is wise and moving.--Ronald Hendel, Norma and Sam Dabby Professor of Hebrew Bible and Jewish Studies, University of California, Berkeley

His book's greatest value lies in forcing contemporary readers to grapple with biblical stories that some would prefer to ignore.--Michael Carasik"H-Judaic" (01/01/0001)

Professor Segal's writing is easily accessible and can be read as a modern commentary to the Bible providing us with new insights for thought and interpretation.--Barbara Andrews"Jewish Book Council Online" (01/01/0001)
