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.

Robert Alter

. . .[T]he compelling appeal of the book is the thesis, not the translation. . . .a challenging, exhilarating theory that will force biblical scholars to rethink some basic assumptions, but he has not made a conclusive case. . . .[He] has put forth a bold thesis that should give everyone pause. —The New York Times Book Review
