Reviews

"Robert Altern's translation with commentary of 'The Five Books of Moses' can be fairly described as a godsend". Seamus Heaney, Books of the Year, "The Times Literary Supplments". "In this remarkable translation....a monument of scholarship....Alter brings a kind of sensitivity to bear on moment after moment of his translation...".James Wood, "London Review of Books". "The commentary is at least as important as the translation, and the two together make up a unique contribution both to biblical studies and to the understanding and appreciation of a text that is central to Western culture". John Barton, "The Times Literary Supplement". "A new translation with fascinating annotations". Robert Crumb, Summer books, "The Guardian".
