Description

Critic and author Robert Alter presents a new translation of Genesis that reveals the complexity, depth, and eloquence of this beloved biblical Book. Alter's perceptive translation is both contemporary and literary, revealing the meaning of the ancient Hebrew text through language that is both modern and strikingly poetic. From Adam and Eve to Noah and the Great Flood, to the covenant with Abraham, Genesis contains some of the most sacred stories of Western civilization. Alter uses his literary genius to evoke these stories in all their epic splendor, philosophical weightiness, and powerful beauty. This audio also includes an exclusive interview with Thomas Moore, author of Care of the Soul, in which he discusses the meaning of Genesis for today's generation.

Translated by Robert Alter.
