Pathways through the Bible by Mortimer J Cohen( Book )

12 editions published between 1946 and 1964 in English and held by 388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Jewish Publication Society first published Pathways Through the Bible in 1946 to much acclaim. The original book featured selections from the 1917 translation of the JPS Tanakh, bridged by narrative summaries written by Rabbi Cohen. It became a standard young adult and adult education text for teaching the Bible." "Rabbi David Stein has revised this great classic by replacing the 1917 JPS translation with the 1985 translation and updating Cohen's prose into a modern, gender-sensitive idiom that reflects the sense and sensibilities of our own time." "This new edition shares the same essential features as the original, especially the core principle that Pathways Through the Bible, in Cohen's words, "is not intended to replace The Holy Scriptures ... it is rather to be regarded as preparatory to the reading of the Bible itself ... Its purpose is to open for you pathways into the magic realm of the greatest literature ever written.""--Jacket
