A Bible for the Liberal
Open Road Media, Feb 22, 2022 - Philosophy - 368 pages
The ethical teachings of Judaism and Christianity are presented in distilled form in this concise volume of Biblical writings.
A Bible for the Liberal is not a new book. It is, rather, a selection of the principles of ethics, taken from all biblical literature, including the Hebrew Books of Wisdom and The Apocrypha, without the usual mythological and ritualistic framework.
In these selections, philosopher Dagobert D. Runes presents what he calls “the essence of true Judaism and Christianity.” The believer, as well as the non-believer, will be able to find in this book the essential ethics of the great law-givers and prophets of biblical times.
