Item description for A Rabbi Reads The Bible (SCM Classics) by Jonathan Magonet...

Since its first appearance in 1991, under the title A Rabbi's Bible, Jonathan Magonet's introduction to the Jewish reading of Scripture has proved immensely popular, with Dutch and German editions. The informal style and wit open a wide range of scholarly issues to the general and specialist reader, and encourage a journey of discovery into unfamiliar traditional and modern Jewish approaches to the text of the Bible. For this new addition, Rabbi Magonet has added two new chapters, on the Biblical context of 'You shall love your neighbour as yourself', and the inner logic of the Ten Commandments. Another humorous, yet challenging, sermon from the Annual Jewish-Christian Bible Week in Bendorf, adds a further example of creative reading with contemporary overtones. An updated suggested reading list adds to the value of this stimulating book.

Publishers Description
Rabbi Magonet's love of the Hebrew Bible developed whilst studying to be a Rabbi. Studying the Bible became a source of comfort, challenge and religious growth, without sacrificing the importance of the scientific approaches of study. This book opens up the Bible so that all readers will find their perspective and understanding changed.

Reviews - What do customers think about A Rabbi Reads The Bible?

great resource  Sep 17, 2007
This is a hard to find book so I was happy to find it and receive so easily from Amazaon. The book is a great resource on beginning Old Testament studies from the respectful perspective of a Jewish rabbi. The book is a series of essays on specific topics from images of God to the Fall in the Garden. A great book for religious studies.
