($19.99)
The finest introduction to the Hebrew Scriptures available anywhere is at your fingertips in "The Meaning of the Bible." Preeminent biblical scholars Douglas A. Knight and Amy-Jill Levine deliver the fullest introduction to the Old Testament--also known as the Tanakh or Hebrew Bible--ever, offering a wealth of highly readable historical background and social context, plus an examination of the meaning and aesthetic value of the sacred literature at the heart of Judaism and Christianity. John Shelby Spong, author of "Re-Claiming the Bible for a Non-Religious World "writes, "Amy-Jill Levine and Douglas A. Knight have combined to write a book on the Bible that is as academically brilliant as it is marvelously entertaining. By placing our scriptures into their original Jewish context they have opened up startling and profound new insights. This is a terrific book."
