Publisher's Summary

In Hebrew, the word Torah means instruction, and throughout thousands of years this collection of writing has offered just that - instruction in the central beliefs of three world religions: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. But by observing the Torah, or the Hebrew Bible, as a collected work of multiple authors spanning generations, the modern reader can look beyond its fundamental instruction.
The Wisdom of the Torah concentrates on the Hebrew Bible as a book of philosophy and literature and offers some of its most powerful and poetic passages, including "The Poems of King David", "The Parables of King Solomon", and "The Love Songs of King Solomon". In these works, readers find many lyrical and timeless reflections on what it means to have faith and to be a member of the human race.

Misleading Publisher Summary

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I'm well into the book, but haven't finished it. I may stop soon. After a brief prologue, the balance of the book has been an abridged reading of The King James Bible. The JPS reading is both unabridged, and a better translation. By my reading of the publisher's summary it seemed to me that this would be a commentary to the Hebrew Bible, not just an abridged version of it. I don't recommend this.
