Yoram Hazony - Mandel JCC Festival of Books
Book:  The Philosophy of Hebrew Scripture

What if the Hebrew Bible wasn't meant to be read as "revelation?" What if the authors of the Bible meant to present us with a book that's not about miracles or the afterlife, but about how to lead our lives in this world? In The Philosophy of Hebrew Scripture, Yoram Hazony proposes a new framework for reading the Bible. The book highlights how the biblical authors used narrative and prophetic oratory to advance universal arguments about ethics and political philosophy, metaphysics and theory of knowledge. This interdisciplinary work is accessible and fascinating to both scholars and readers of all backgrounds.  Open the door to a book you never knew existed and you'll never read the Bible the same way again. Jonathan Sacks, Lord Chief Rabbi of the British Commonwealth, described the book as "A paradigm-shifting work of immense significance, . . This is an important and pioneering work which deserves to be widely read and deeply discussed."

Yoram Hazony is founder and provost of the Shalem Center in Jerusalem. His essays and articles have appeared in The New York Times, The New Republic, Commentary and Ha'aretz, among other publications. He has also written several books and writes a regular blog on philosophy, Judaism, Israel and higher education called Jerusalem Letters. Yoram lives in Jerusalem with his wife Yael and their nine children.
