Brilliant book, exploring many different aspects of the Tanakh/Old Testament.. The language is very accessible - technical stuff is kept to a minimum and well explained. Humour occasionally bubbles up; and the authors don't deal in euphemisms! I'd recommend it especially to Christians like myself - we don't always get the O.T. nuances and emphases. I have studied the Bible for about 60 years, and found I was learning a great deal. The Index is helpful

The Meaning of the Bible One would not agree with all the conclusions drawn by the authors of this book - for instance,on page 165 where it states, "Obadiah-writing perhaps in the sixth century-speaks of the 'exiles of the Israelites who are in Halah,[who]shall possess Phoenicia as far as Zarepath' (20a). This is one prediction that cannot come true, since Phoenica no longer exists." Would Obadiah be likely to mention a particular territory using 21st Century CE designations? There are points made concerning the Book of Genesis that are equally strange. However, the book is well worth reading and I have gleaned much from it, and indeed quoted much from it. I fully encourage the authors in their approach concerning bringing a Jewish understanding of the Scriptures to us - much needed and long overdue! It is a book for both Christians and Jews, and one that I recommend.
