Publishers Description
Regarded throughout the English-speaking world as the standard English translation of the Holy Scriptures, the JPS TANAKH has been acclaimed by scholars, rabbis, lay leaders, Jews, and Christians alike. TANAKH is an entirely original translation of the Holy Scriptures into contemporary English, based on the Masoretic (the traditional Hebrew) text. It is the culmination of three decades of collaboration by academic scholars and rabbis, representing the three largest branches of organized Judaism in the United States. Not since the third century B.C.E., when 72 elders of the tribes of Israel created the Greek translation of Scriptures, known as the Septuagint, has such a broad-based committee of Jewish scholars produced a major Bible translation. In executing this monumental task, the translators made use of the entire range of biblical interpretation, ancient and modern, Jewish and non-Jewish. They drew upon the latest findings in linguistics and archaeology, as well as the work of early rabbinic and medieval commentators, grammarians, and philologians. The resulting text is a triumph of literary style and biblical scholarship, unsurpassed in accuracy and clarity.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Highly recommended...  May 19, 2008
I think this is a truly beautiful translation. I was also very happy with the quality of the book itself. Well worth every penny.
Tanakh - English translation  May 3, 2008
This is a readable translation of Hebrew scriptures. It is easily understood in distinction to the KJV, but without the English poetry. It is far more authorative than KJV. The paperback version (mine) is easily held and convenient to read.
Tanakh review  Feb 13, 2008
As a Religious Studies major, I chose this text to get the "feel" of reading old scripture. I was not disappointed. It is a wonderful, beautifully written form of the Hebrew Bible. It will treasure for all time as part of my Biblical "library."
where is it?!  Oct 14, 2007
Its been over a month and I have still not received this book. I got the three other books i orded,so where is this one? This is not the first time this has happened to me with this site.
Very Readable Version  Sep 26, 2007
The Tanakh (1985) is very readable and easy to understand. It includes informative footnotes and offers a more direct translation from the original Hebrew into English. (Many of our better-known translations are taken from the Greek version [the Septuagint], which was translated from the Hebrew after Greek replaced Hebrew and Aramaic as the dominant language).

The Tanakh is based on the "original" Hebrew Bible, which means that it does not include any of the New Testament. The "Old Testament" books in the Tanakh are in a different order than other traditional English language Bible translations. The books are grouped together in three sections, based on the Hebrew tradition:

The Torah (5 books of Moses)
The Prophets
The Writings

If you are looking for a more direct translation based on original texts translated by Hebrew scholars -- without having to learn Hebrew! -- this book is a must read.
