In The Eternal Books Retold, Alex J. Goldman takes on the role of a friendly, dedicated teacher as he summarizes the 39 books of the Bible.
Rabbi Goldman writes: "My purpose in retelling and explaining the ancient books of The Holy Scriptures is to place the whole body of this religious literature within the covers of a single volume, easily intelligible to readers of all ages, for their enlightenment, and inspiration, and to perform the service of a personal guide through the labyrinth of the world's foremost book."
Rabbi Goldman captures the flavor of The Torah (Pentateuch), The Prophets (Neviim), and The Writings (Ketuvim), giving each its own life, character, freshness, and insight. Reading The Eternal Books Retold thus becomes an exciting journey through the history of formative civilization. The familiar stories from Genesis, through the Prophets, Judges, Psalms, Proverbs, Job, the Song of Songs, Ruth, Esther, Daniel, and many more, are revitalized by the author's literary gifts and Hebrew scholarship.
