Rosenberg presents for the first time a synthesis of the literary aspects of the Hebrew Bible, showing how, when, and by whom the various books of the Bible were written, and allowing the reader to experience each book in discreet and contemporary idiom.

A Jewish sage once said of the original Bible, "Turn it and turn it, for everything is in it." David Rosenberg has done just this and thus created A Literary Bible, a breathtaking translation that sets a new standard for reading and interpreting the Hebrew Scriptures. Until now, translators have presented a homogeneous Bible in uniform style--even as the various books within it were written by different authors, in diverse genres and periods, stretching over many centuries. Now, Rosenberg's artful translation restores what has been left aside: the essence of imaginative creation in the Bible. In A Literary Bible, Rosenberg presents for the first time a synthesis of the literary aspects of the Hebrew Bible--showing how, when, and by whom the various books of the Bible were written, and allowing the reader to experience each book in discrete and contemporary idiom, as if it were written in our time. Beautifully rendered, Rosenberg's meticulous translation is a significant addition to our understanding of the greatest narrative of all time--one that is sure to be loved by laypeople and religious scholars alike.
