Title: Genesis: A New Translation of the Classic Bible Stories

Rating:
6 downloads, last downloaded at August 3, 2016

In this highly acclaimed translation, Stephen Mitchell conveys in English the simplicity, dignity and powerful earthiness of the original Hebrew. More than just interpreting it, he also separates stories that were combined by scribes centuries after they were written, explaining their sources and omitting all verses that are recognized as scribal additions. Like removing coat after coat of lacquer from a once-­vibrant masterpiece, this allows readers to appreciate the clarity of the original tales.­Genesis is an extraordinarily beautiful book that is accessible in a way that no other translation has ever been. It will shed new light on readers' understanding of this seminal work of sacred scripture.
