Product Description

Richard Elliott Friedman uncovers a 3,000-year-old epic hidden within the books of the Hebrew Bible. This beautiful, exciting story, which Friedman has titled In the Day, is at once the oldest work of prose in the world and a compelling account of humankind's complex relationship with God. Obscured by ancient editors and lost for millennia, the work is here translated and presented the way it was meant to be read.

Publisher's Description

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.
