Commentary on the Torah : with a new English translation and the Hebrew text

One of the world's leading biblical scholars unveils the unity and continuity of the Torah for the modern reader. Friedman integrates recent discoveries in biblical archaeology and research with the fruits of years of experience studying and teaching the Bible to illuminate the straightforward meaning of the text--"to shed new light on the Torah and, more important, to open windows through which it sheds its light on us." It includes the original Hebrew text, a new translation, and an authoritative, accessibly written interpretation and analysis of each passage that remains focused on the meaning of the Torah as a whole.--From publisher description
