Whether rendering the Bible as wondrous or as strangely familiar, this magisterial translation asks how, in literary terms, it remains a crucial foundation of contemporary culture. Until now, the Bible has been presented in a homogenous style, even though the books contained within it were written by a variety of authors stretching over centuries. Through artful translation, Rosenberg restores the essence of imaginative creation in the Bible and a sense of the original authors with penetrating scholarship allowing the reader to encounter inspired biblical prose and verse.
