Editorial Reviews


“Fox’s translation creates a wild reserve where biblical narration roams free. . . . It takes a gutsy translator—especially of the Holy Writ—to countenance mystery, much less messiness. Fox is faithful not only to the text but also to his readers, and he trusts our ability to manage ambiguity. . . .  In a field where divinely enabled delusion is an occupational hazard, Fox’s unwillingness to polish away jaggedness and doubt, his consciousness of the beautiful human mess involved in producing even a Bible, may be his boldest contribution.” —Avi Steinberg, The New Yorker

“In this remarkable volume of translation, Everett Fox has invaded our common assumptions about the Bible, extracted accents and cadences, and brought the text home to us in fresh and compelling ways. . . . He offers succinct notes of commentary that are well informed by current scholarship and that consistently take a commonsense, balanced position. His work will provide a lively script for the performance of the text in Jewish and Christian communities of faith.  This is an immense accomplishment [and] Fox is to be celebrated for his singular achievement. It is the sound of faith that is knowing, empowering, ironic, and summoning.” —Walter Brueggemann,
Christian Century

Praise for Everett Fox’s The Five Books of Moses
“Stunning . . . This refreshing and authoritative new translation makes it possible for us to take up the Scripture as if we had never seen it before, as if we were listening to its being read aloud for the first time.” —Edward Hirsch,
The New York Times Book Review
“Those who have been looking for an English translation of the Hebrew Bible that will, at last, let them glimpse the vitality of the Hebrew text will treasure this new translation and will wait expectantly for more translations from Fox.”  —Edward Mark,
The Boston Globe
“Fox’s translation has the rare virtue of making constantly visible in English the Hebraic quality of the original, challenging preconceptions of what the Bible is really like. It is a bracing protest against the bland modernity of all the recent English versions of the Bible.” —Robert Alter, University of California, Berkeley
“No serious Bible reader—whether Jewish, Christian, or secular—can afford to ignore this volume.” —Jon D. Levenson, Harvard Divinity School
“A remarkable and impressive achievement. Anybody who wants to find out what the Bible really says, instead of merely enjoying a decorous experience, should study this translation and Fox’s excellent notes for fresh insights that delight as often as they instruct.” —Karen Armstrong, author of
A History of God
