Tanakh, an Owner's Manual

Tanakh, an Owner's Manual

Authorship, Canonization, Masoretic Text, Exegesis, Modern Scholarship and Pedagogy

By Moshe Sokolow

Tanakh, an Owner’s Manual offers both a modern and Orthodox approach to the historical and literary frameworks within which the Hebrew Bible should be learned and appreciated. It covers the authorship of its 24 constituent books, their designation as sacred literature (canonization), the development of the Masoretic text, a survey of classic medieval and modern commentaries, the interaction of traditional exegesis and modern Biblical scholarship, and a gradual curriculum for developing Biblical literacy and comprehension. It reflects the author’s insights as they developed over 40 years of studying and teaching, and will be of interest to teachers, students, and anyone who wants a deeper understanding of the Hebrew Bible.

Sokolow’s engaging work sheds light on how the Tanakh as we know it Review by Rachel Friedman, Associate Dean of Tanakh Studies
Combining quality and clarity, this book could have been written only by a major Bible scholar and a master pedagogue. Dr. Sokolow’s engaging work sheds light on how the Tanakh as we know it came to be, how it has been interpreted, and how it may best be taught to contemporary audiences. It is a jewel to be treasured by scholars, teachers, students, and the general reader. (Posted on 5/7/2015)
