This is one of the best books on The Bible that I've ever read. It is thought-provoking, insightful, and wonderfully human and humorous. I read it after seeing the author on Bill Moyer's Genesis series. This book is not just for Jewish readers; I think anyone who enjoys reading and thinking will find it delightful. It will spur even skeptics like me to a reading and appreciation of the ancient writings in The Bible.
