Professor Friedman does what I had to do by myself decades ago with one of my study Bibles. He indicates the sources of Torah with color and type. Not everyone thinks this part of scholarship means much to lay people. Robert Alter seems to be one who takes it with bit of reserve. However, I wish this had been available when I was a young university student. Of course, at that time, Friedman was himself a young university student. This is a great resource for Sunday school teachers and leaders of small Bible study groups.

Once yoi get passed the intro (which is fascinating though also free) the whole book relys on color coding ro highlight the various sources, which if course arent duplicated on the nook and no attempt Is made to notate them in a monotone friendly manner. The authors translation is interesting buts it's still the same torah we've all read a million times. I am going to try and get a refund nd get this book in print.
