really liked it
bookshelves: religion, religion-judaism, nonfiction
Read in January, 1999

An excellent follow-up to Friedman's earlier work Who Wrote the Bible, this book restores what Friedman considers to be the text of the core story from the Old Testament. I find such reconstructed texts (as in The Five Gospels, by the Jesus Seminar, or, in a fantasy setting, The Silmarillion) to be both exhilarating and problematic, but Friedman's excellent writing carries the day.
