The Bible with Sources Revealed - eBook [ePub]

A New View Into the Five Books of Moses
  • By Richard E. Friedman
Product Description

Richard Elliott Friedman, one of the world's foremost experts on the Bible, reveals the complex and fascinating origins of the Five Books of Moses with a unique visual presentation.

It has long been accepted in the field of biblical studies that there were four major sources for the early books of the Old Testament, commonly known as J, E, P, and D. In The Bible with Sources Revealed, Friedman describes each of the sources -- their historical backgrounds, political and social agendas, relationships to each other, and when and how each of the Five Books was assembled.

The book contains Friedman's English translations of Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy, with each of the four sources distinguished by different fonts, colors, and typefaces. By understanding its intricate design, readers can now further appreciate the rich complexity of the Bible.

Richard Elliot Friedman is a biblical scholar and the Ann and Jay Davis Professor of Jewish Studies at the University of Georgia. He previously held the Katzin Chair at the University of California, San Diego. Friedman earned his doctorate at Harvard and was a visiting scholar at Oxford and Cambridge. He is the author of numerous books, including The Hidden Face of God, Commentary on the Torah, and Who Wrote the Bible?

"An amazing work. It makes the theory of the Bible's origins available to all in a clear and concise way. The introduction is superb. This book will be an indispensable addition to the library of scholars as well as laypeople."

- David Ellenson, President of Hebrew Union College--Jewish Institute of Religion

--Eugene Ulrich, University of Notre Dame
