I first encountered the work of Robert Alter through his translation and commentary of the books of Samuel. It was invaluable as I preached through the books. I then picked up The Art of Biblical Narrative. Its impact on me was massive.
In December of 2018, Robert Alter released his entire translation and commentary of the Hebrew Bible. It represents two and a half decades of work. Its an important achievement and the three volumes deserve a place on your shelf.
So I’m giving away the three-volume hardback set as well as Alter’s groundbreaking The Art of Biblical Narrative and The Art of Biblical Poetry.
