Summary
What if the Hebrew Bible wasn't meant to be read as "revelation"? What if it's not really about miracles or the afterlife, but about how to lead our lives in this world? The Philosophy of Hebrew Scripture proposes a new framework for reading the Bible. It attempts to show how biblical authors used narrative and prophetic oratory to advance universal arguments about ethics, political philosophy, and metaphysics. -- Publisher description
