by Richard Elliott Friedman, The Hidden Book In The Bible Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Hidden Book In The Bible books, Renowned biblical sleuth and scholar Richard Elliot Friedman reveals the first work of prose literature in the world-a 3000-year-old epic hidden within the books of the Hebrew Bible. Written by a single, masterful author but obscured by ancient editors and lost for millennia, this brilliant epic of love, deception, war, and redemption is a compelling account of humankind's complex relationship with God. Friedman boldly restores this prose masterpiece-the very heart of the Bible-to the extraordinary form in which it was originally written.
by Richard Friedman, Who Wrote The Bible Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Who Wrote The Bible books, A much anticipated reissue of Who Wrote the Bible?—the contemporary classic the New York Times Book Review called “a thought-provoking [and] perceptive guide” that identifies the individual writers of the Pentateuch and explains what they can teach us about the origins of the Bible. For thousands of years, the prophet Moses was regarded as the sole author of the first five books of the Bible, known as the Pentateuch. According to tradition, Moses was divinely directed to write down foundational events in the history of the world: the creation of humans, the worldwide flood, the laws as they were handed down at Mt. Sinai, and the cycle of Israel’s enslavement and liberation from Egypt. However, these stories—and their frequent discrepancies—provoke questions: why does the first chapter in Genesis say that man and woman were made in God’s image, while the second says that woman was made from man’s rib? Why does one account of the flood say it lasted forty days, while another records no less than one hundred? And why do some stories reflect the history of southern Judah, while others seem sourced from northern Israel? Originally published in 1987, Richard Friedman’s Who Wrote the Bible? joins a host of modern scholars who show that the Pentateuch was written by at least four distinct voices—separated by borders, political alliances, and particular moments in history—then connected by brilliant editors. Rather than cast doubt onto the legitimacy of the Bible, Friedman uses these divergent accounts to illuminate a text that was written by real people. Friedman’s seminal and bestselling text is a comprehensive and authoritative answer to the question: just who exactly wrote the Bible?
by Richard Elliott Friedman, The Exodus Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Exodus books, The Exodus has become a core tradition of Western civilization. Millions read it, retell it, and celebrate it. But did it happen? Biblical scholars, Egyptologists, archaeologists, historians, literary scholars, anthropologists, and filmmakers are drawn to it. Unable to find physical evidence until now, many archaeologists and scholars claim this mass migration is just a story, not history. Others oppose this conclusion, defending the biblical account. Like a detective on an intricate case no one has yet solved, pioneering Bible scholar and bestselling author of Who Wrote the Bible? Richard Elliott Friedman cuts through the noise — the serious studies and the wild theories — merging new findings with new insight. From a spectrum of disciplines, state-of-the-art archeological breakthroughs, and fresh discoveries within scripture, he brings real evidence of a historical basis for the exodus — the history behind the story. The biblical account of millions fleeing Egypt may be an exaggeration, but the exodus itself is not a myth. Friedman does not stop there. Known for his ability to make Bible scholarship accessible to readers, Friedman proceeds to reveal how much is at stake when we explore the historicity of the exodus. The implications, he writes, are monumental. We learn that it became the starting-point of the formation of monotheism, the defining concept of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Moreover, we learn that it precipitated the foundational ethic of loving one’s neighbors — including strangers — as oneself. He concludes, the actual exodus was the cradle of global values of compassion and equal rights today.

Download books, تأتي هذه الترجمة بعد 50 سنة على ترجمة الخوري يوحنا الحلو لهذه الاعترافات. وهي منقولة عن اللاتينية، وتميّزها هوامش وتعليقات، يصعُب فهم النص من دونها، وضعها العلّامة بيار دي لابريول، إضافة إلى معجم عربي لاتيني فرنسي لمصطلحات وألفاظ القديس أوغستينوس. يُعدّ أوغستينوس، من أشهر آباء الكنيسة، ومن أبرز مؤسّسيها. وهو من أصل بربريّ، ترَوْمَنَت أسرته. وكان أبوه متشبّثاً بالوثنيّة القديمة، في حين كانت أمّه "مونيكا" مسيحيّة متّقدة الإيمان، أثّرت في ابنها أيّما تأثير، حتى بعد أن تجاوز طور المراهقة وطيش الشباب، تاب واعتنق دينها. كان أوغستينوس قاضياً وداعية وخطيباً، يُلقّب بالأفريقيّ، وكان فعلاً أفريقيّا أصيلاً، يلبس قميصا أبيض من صوف ويضع على رأسه قلنسوة بيضاء وفي رجليه نعل، ويجوب المقاطعة الأفريقية على ظهر حمار أو بغلة، أو على قدميه، مقاوماً الفساد والشعوذة وبقايا الوثنيّة. لهذا النصّ قيمة مرجعيّة تاريخيّة، إذ نقل الفلسفة الروحانيّة اليونانيّة من ثوبها الأفلاطونيّ الحديث، وخاصّة الأفلوطينيّ، إلى أجواء مسيحّية صرف، مُمهّدًا بذلك الطريق إلى الفكر اللاهوتيّ الغربي. ولئن طغت العقيدة المسيحيّة على أعمال أوغستينوس الأخرى، فإنّ "الاعترافات" مثّلت الفترة التاريخيّة التي تأرجح فيها الفكر الإنسانيّ بين العقلانيّة والتصوّف، كما مثّلت نهاية التاريخ القديم وبداية العصر الوسيط. في هذه "الاعترافات" مراجعة للنفس وتأصيل للنقد الذاتي ومشروع روحاني ترك تأثيرًا كبيرًا على المسيحية من بعده. وهي بمثابة "شاهد" أو علامة فكرية بارزة، في مسيرة الحضارة الكونية.

by Maurice D. Harris, Moses Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Moses books, In Moses: A Stranger among Us, Rabbi Maurice Harris leads us to look beyond familiar and popular portrayals of Moses so that we can discover the Moses whose lesser-known attributes and experiences provide us with surprisingly fresh ethical and spiritual guidance. Harris offers many angles on his subject, interweaving traditional religious interpretations, academic Bible scholarship, psychological and sociological analysis, feminist readings, and more. Combining deep respect for the biblical text with a willingness to question received tradition, Harris reveals a complex Moses whose life story gives us important tools for better understanding issues like religious fundamentalism, intermarriage, identity confusion, civil disobedience, gay and lesbian equality, and the nature of sacred mythic storytelling. Written in a refreshing, plainspoken voice for people of all faiths or none, the result is a volume of creative, thought-provoking, and exciting readings of the Bible.
by James S. Diamond, Scribal Secrets Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Scribal Secrets books, The text of the Torah includes not only its words, but also various atypical scribal features. Prime among these are the dots over certain letters, various letters written either large or small, and the exceedingly odd placement of two inverted Hebrew letters surrounding one passage. What are these features doing there? How old are they? Do they carry meaning? How have they been interpreted over the years? James Diamond brings the reader on the journey through the Torah text in search of a response to these questions.

by Roger L. Price, When Judaism Meets Science Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download When Judaism Meets Science books, This book seeks to confront the challenge that science presents to the traditional pillars of Judaism. It identifies and analyzes a wide variety of issues, including some contemporary sacred cows. First, the book considers what is fact and what is fiction in the primary stories contained in Judaism's foundational texts. Then, drawing on Jewish ethical teachings, it seeks to determine how Judaism and science can inform each other with respect to a broad range of contemporary issues, from abortion and allergies to vaccinations and violence with firearms. Finally, it peeks into the future to address issues that Judaism and science are just now beginning to discuss, such as an exotheology for aliens on distant planets, a Jewdroid who seeks acceptance in a shul, and even the fate of the universe itself. When Judaism Meets Science addresses readers of all persuasions--regardless of denomination and whether a believer or not--as the author builds a case, with specific recommendations, for the value of a reality-based Judaism, one grounded on both traditional ethics and empirical evidence that can resonate with the educated adults of Israel.
