"Judaism, Christianity, and Islam all acknowledge the Hebrew Bible to be Sacred Scripture. And yet these different, and often contradictory, religions each has its own way of reading the Bible, and interpreting it according to its own later sacred literature." "The Seventy Faces of Torah explains in clear and accessible language the Jewish art of reading and interpreting the Bible and introduces the reader to the major texts and genres of rabbinic literature."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
