Praise
"THE FIVE BOOKS OF MOSES is a fine work that deserves admiration for its sheer scale and literary power, and detailed attention for its exact exegesis....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."
