Rabbi Magonet's love of the Hebrew Bible developed whilst studying to be a Rabbi. Studying the Bible became a source of comfort, challenge and religious growth, without sacrificing the importance of the scientific approaches of study. This book opens up the Bible so that all readers will find their perspective and understanding changed.

Jonathan Magonet

Rabbi Professor Jonathan David Magonet is a British Jewish theologian, Vice-President of the World Union for Progressive Judaism, and a biblical scholar. He is highly active in Christian-Jewish dialogue, and in dialogue between Jews and Muslims.

" (...)it is impossible not to admire his inventiveness and erudition.(...)These two books (A Rabbi reads the bible and A Rabbi reads the Psalms) present highly idiosyncratic, personal readings which reflect a formidable intelligence, a wild enthusiasm and an irrepressible sense of humour." Maureen Kendler, education officer with the Jewish Council for Racial Equality, JEWISH CHRONICLE, November 19 2004.

"Magonet's work and methods are sufficiently well known not to require commendation, but readers who missed out on the first version will find much here to open their eyes, fresh stimulus for their thought and at the same time a very good read. For preachers looking for something fresh to say it is a bag of riches." A.Gilmore, SOCIETY FOR OLD TESTAMENT STUDY 2005.

" (...) the most common effect is of imaginative yet convincing interpretation of texts which nowadays many Christians at least are liable to leave aside or use as the fancy takes them. Well, sometimes the latter approach is not without a history!" Leslie Houlden, Emeritus Professor of Theology, King's College, London, INTERRELIGIOUS INSIGHT, January 2005.

"It is a useful resource for RE teachers of the sixth form of for more able Year 13 students studying exegesis in the Bible. It provides stories for teachers and will refresh an interest in reading biblical texts closely. Recommended." Jane Brooke, RE REVIEWS, Autumn 2004.
