More Details

Rarely does a translation surpass the quality of the original work. But what if a translation creates and perpetuates a flawed understanding of the original? After a lifetime of study and reflection, Philip Markowicz contends that poor translations of the Hebrew Bible have caused this venerable text to be misinterpreted. Drawing on insights from traditional Jewish texts, philosophy, and science, Markowicz stridently reads lost meaning back into the biblical text and makes a compelling case for reviving the study of the Hebrew Bible - in Hebrew.
