The Bible with Sources Revealed

A New View Into the Five Books of Moses
  • By Richard E. Friedman
$19.52
Product Description
For centuries, biblical scholars have worked on discovering how the Bible came to be. The consensus that emerged from experts of various traditions was the Documentary Hypothesis: the idea that ancient writers produced documents of poetry, prose, and law over many hundreds of years, which editors then used as sources to fashion the books of the Bible that people have read for the last two thousand years.

In "The Bible with Sources Revealed, Richard Elliott Friedman, one of the world's foremost experts on the Bible and author of the bestselling "Who Wrote the Bible?, offers a new visual presentation of the Five Books of Moses -- Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy -- unlocking their complex and fascinating tapestry of sources. Different colors and type styles allow readers to easily identify each of the distinct sources, showcasing Friedman's highly acclaimed and dynamic translation.

This unique Bible provides a new means to explore the riches of scripture by: Making it possible to read the source texts individually, to see their artistry, their views of God, Israel, and humankind, and their connection to their moment in history;
Presenting the largest collection of evidence ever assembled for establishing and explaining the Documentary Hypothesis;
Showing visually how the Bible was formed out of these sources; and
Helping readers appreciate that the Bible is a rich, complex, beautiful work as a result of the extraordinary way in which it was created.

Now everyone can explore these rich resources. This new version will forever change the way you understand the Five Books of Moses.
