Sacred is the lush official catalog of the groundbreaking British Library exhibit bearing the same name, which presents many of the worldʹs most beautiful religious texts for the first time.

Scripture and translation by Martin Buber( Book )

3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 464 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Scripture and Translation is the first English translation of an essential work on translation theory and the modern literary study of the Bible. First published in Germany in 1936 as Die Schrift und ihre Verdeutschung, the book grew out of Buber and Rosenzweig's work on an innovative and still controversial German translation of the Hebrew Bible. Rather than provide an idiomatic rendering, the Buber-Rosenzweig translation recasts the German language on the model of biblical Hebrew by attempting to reproduce the spoken quality, structure, and ordering of poetic devices found in the original texts. These essays articulate the rationale for the translation, both in theoretical terms and through close readings of specific texts. This edition also includes the first publication in any language of Martin Buber's essay "The How and Why of Our Biblical Translation."
In the beginning : a new English rendition of the Book of Genesis( Book )

7 editions published between 1972 and 1986 in English and held by 450 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Give us a king! : Samuel, Saul, and David : a new translation of Samuel I and II( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Everett Fox's translation of the biblical books from Genesis through Deuteronomy has been widely acclaimed as a scholarly, religious, and literary masterpiece. Praising its unique and authoritative approach, the New York Times Book review said, "It makes it possible for us to take up the Scripture as if we had never seen it before." In Give us a King! Fox turns to the two books of Samuel, which contain some of the Bible's most famous stories and most unforgettable personalities: the barren Hannah, who will be mother to the prophet Samuel; the tragic King Saul; Bathsheba, the object of King David's illicit desire and the future mother of King Solomon; and King David himself, the romantic hero who becomes a legendary but morally compromised monarch. Accompanied by illuminating commentary and notes, Fox's masterful translation recreates the echoes, allusions, alliterations, and wordplays of the Hebrew original, so that the reader is fully able to experience in English the full power of the ancient saga of the original once and future king. -- from dust jacket

The early prophets : Joshua, Judges, Samuel, and Kings( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story of ancient Israel, from the arrival in Canaan to the destruction of the Kingdom of Judah and the Babylonian exile some six centuries later: the highly anticipated second volume in Everett Fox's landmark translation of the Hebrew Bible. The personalities who appear in the pages of The Early Prophets, and the political and moral dilemmas their stories illuminate, are part of the living consciousness of the Western world. From Joshua and the tumbling walls of Jericho to Samson and Delilah, the prophet Samuel and the tragic King Saul, David and Goliath, Bathsheba and Absalom, King Solomon's temple, Elijah and the chariot of fire, Ahab and Jezebel'the stories of these men and women are deeply etched into Western culture because of their ability to beautifully encapsulate the human experience. The four books that comprise The Early Prophets look at tribal rivalries, dramatic changes in leadership, and the intrusions of neighboring empires through the prism of a Divine-human relationship. Over the centuries, the faithful have read these narratives as demonstrations of the perils of disobeying God's will, and time and again the Jews in exile found that they spoke to their own situations of cultural assimilation, destruction, and the reformulation of identity. They have had an equally indelible impact on generations of Christians, who have seen in many of the stories foreshadowings of the life and death of Jesus, as well as models for their own lives and the careers of their leaders. But beyond its importance as a foundational religious document, The Early Prophets is a great work of literature, a powerful and distinctive narrative history that seeks meaning in the midst of national catastrophe. Accompanied by illuminating commentary, notes, and maps, Everett Fox's masterly translation re-creates the echoes, allusions, alliterations, and wordplays of the Hebrew original that rhetorically underscore its meaning and are intrinsic to a timeless text meant to be both studied and read aloud
