God: A Biography

New or Used: $37.40
Product Details


Despite its provocative title, this is a serious attempt to come to an understanding of the portrayal of God in the Tanakh, i.e., the books of the Hebrew Scriptures in the order of the Hebrew Bible, as opposed to the order in the Old Testament. Miles, a former Jesuit with a Ph.D. in Near Eastern languages who is currently a member of the editorial board of the Los Angeles Times, offers "knowledge of God as a literary character." While some may not care for how God is portrayed‘at one point he is "whiny"‘the book will appeal to believers and nonbelievers alike as an excellent introduction to the Hebrew Scriptures that does not read like a Scripture commentary. Recommended for all collections.‘Augustine J. Curley, Newark Abbey, N.J.

Former Jesuit Miles offers a detailed analysis of the nature and character of God as he appears in the Old Testament. (Apr.)
