Praise
"Kirsch takes us on a relentless, deeply probing search for 'the real Moses,' who is 'not quite the same man who is described in the pages of the Bible.' And he is certainly not the person 'two or three thousand years of art, theology, politics, and propaganda have turned...from a mortal man into a plaster saint.'"
From the Publisher
Editors Note Lawgiver and liberator. Seer and prophet. The only human permitted to converse with God "face-to-face." Moses is the most commanding presence in the Old Testament. Yet as Jonathan Kirsch shows in this brilliant, stunningly original volume, Moses was also an enigmatic and mysterious figure--at once a good shepherd and a ruthless warrior, a spiritual leader and a magician, a lawgiver who broke his own laws, God's chosen friend and hounded victim. Now, in Moses: A Life, Kirsch accomplishes the wondrous feat of revealing the real Moses, a strikingly modern figure who steps out from behind the facade of Sunday school lessons and movie matinees.
Editors Note 1 A portrait of one of the most dynamic figures of the Old Testament explores Moses' diverse roles as shepherd, warrior, spiritual leader, miracle worker, and lawgiver.
