People and the Books by Kirsch, Adam
People and the Books: 18 Classics of Jewish Literature
by Kirsch, Adam
 
Jews have long embraced their identity as “the people of the book.” But outside of the Bible, much of the Jewish literary tradition remains little known to nonspecialist readers. Adam Kirsch here shows how central questions and themes of our history and culture are reflected in the Jewish literary canon: the nature of God, the right way to understand the Bible, the relationship of the Jews to their Promised Land, and the challenges of living as a minority in the Diaspora.
