The most common English translations of the Bible often sound like a single, somewhat archaic voice. In fact, the Bible is made up of many separate books composed by multiple writers in a wide range of styles and perspectives. It is, as Michael Carasik demonstrates, not a remote text reserved for churches and synagogues but rather a human document full of history, poetry, politics, theology, and spirituality.

Using historic, linguistic, anthropological, and theological sources, Carasik helps us distinguish between the Jewish Bible’s voices—the mythic, the historical, the prophetic, the theological, and the legal. By articulating the differences among these voices, he shows us not just their messages and meanings but also what mattered to the authors. In these contrasts we encounter the Bible anew as a living work whose many voices tell us about the world out of which the Bible grew—and the world that it created.

Endorsement:
“An engaging presentation of the most current scholarship about the Jewish Bible. Carasik’s description of the numerous voices, which speak in its pages, illumines their teachings, illustrates their origin, and clarifies their relationships with each other and the world from which they emerged.”—Frederick E. Greenspahn, Gimelstob Eminent Scholar of Judaic Studies, Florida Atlantic University

This is a very good general overview book, but not an essential. One of those to add to your library so you have something to read by the fire when you want to relax and not exercise your mind too much. I could also see this book being used in a home group situation as it is very approachable and not technical so could be used by all age groups and backgrounds.

Much of it will be familiar to a bible scholar but it gathers together information which is presented in a very readable and enjoyable form.

I first read 'how to read the jewish bible' by Marc Zvi Brettler which i enjoyed and is very similar and covers virtually the same material as in Carasik's volume. Both books are very readable, but both books come at the material from different directions and are organised in a different way. If you have read one, you probably dont need the other but as the bible's many voices is in accordance, this is a major benefit as you can see the biblical references and explore diferent ...

Because i had already read 'how to read the jewish bible', an additional voice i keep hearing when reading Bible's many voices is Marc Brettler's voice. Its good to read something that complements and is consistent and confirms something else you have read and the different arrangement adds a different perspective.
