  • Josephby Alan T. Levenson

    The Jewish Publication Society 2016; US$ 32.95

    The complex and dramatic story of Joseph is the most sustained narrative in Genesis. Many call it a literary masterpiece and a story of great depth that can be read on many levels.

  • Judaismby E. P. Sanders

    Fortress Press 2016; US$ 38.99

    In this now-classic work, E. P.

  • Jonah and the Meaning of Our Livesby Steven Bob

    The Jewish Publication Society 2016; US$ 19.95

    The Book of Jonah stands unique among the biblical books of the prophets because it is almost entirely narrative. And, in contrast to all the other prophets portrayed as admirable individuals who bravely speak God?s word, Jonah stands out as flawed and fleeing from God. We are drawn to Jonah because God gives him an opportunity to redeem himself.... more...

    Oxford University Press 2016; US$ 97.99 US$ 84.27

    How did Jews understand sacred writing before the concepts of "Bible" and "book" emerged?
