James Kugel: HOW TO READ THE BIBLE: A Guide to Scripture Then and Now
James Kugel contends that modern readers of the Bible are caught between two opposing ways of understanding the text: the approach of the ancient interpreters and that of modern scholars. As a scholar, Kugel cannot ignore what is known about the Bible today. As a man of traditional faith, he must come to terms with both ways of reading the Scriptures. As a master of both approaches, he is ideally suited to the task. HOW TO READ THE BIBLE is his guide to the Hebrew Bible. Chapter by chapter, Kugel attempts to find the key to solving the dilemma of reading the Bible today by explaining the original meaning of the Bible's stories as it has been explicated by modern scholarship and then by examining the interpretations of the commentators who lived at the end of the biblical period. Kugel's "magnificent" work is "certainly one of the most popular books on the Bible in many years." (Ha'aretz).
