Reviews

Winner of the National Jewish Book Award for Jewish Thought
"A groundbreaking study that encourages us to look beneath the theological surface of the biblical text to glimpse its beating heart."--Jonathan Kirsch, Los Angeles Times
"[An] admirable book....It is truly extraordinary that such familiar tales as those of Joseph and David should acquire so much detail and color, as if perfectly restored."--The New York Times
"The results of [Alter's] work give the Bible a fresh voice for a new generation of readers."--Christian Science Monitor
"This clearly written book should please anyone interested in the fundamentals of storytelling."--The Washington Post
