Reading the Book : Making the Bible a Timeless Text. by Burton L. Visotzky.

As Burton Visotzky says, the Book of Genesis seems to be, at least on first reading, "an ugly little soap opera about a dysfunctional family. a story about rape, incest, murder, deception, brute force, sex, and blood lust. But these stories reveal much about human dilemmas and ethical problems that mirror our own lives. By delving into the lives of Abraham, Sarah, Isaac, and Esau and holding up these characters of Scripture to the light of critical inquiry, Burton Visotzky reveals much that is fresh and useful about ethics and morality.

Buriwield
One of the difficulties with looking at others religion and practices is understanding their view point, or how they see things. This is an engagingly written book about how the ancient (and modern) Jewish sages see their text. It will help the Christian reader understand the Rabbinic way of telling stories and interpreting the Bible.

This is one of the best books on The Bible that I've ever read. It is thought-provoking, insightful, and wonderfully human and humorous. I read it after seeing the author on Bill Moyer's Genesis series. This book is not just for Jewish readers; I think anyone who enjoys reading and thinking will find it delightful. It will spur even skeptics like me to a reading and appreciation of the ancient writings in The Bible.
