Item Description...
The Jewish Scriptures, known as the Tanakh, comprise three parts-the Torah, the Prophets, and the Writings. This book reveals the Bible according to the Jewish faith- from Adam and Eve and Joseph the Dreamer in the Book of Genesis; to Moses's receipt of the Ten Commandments in the Book of Deuteronomy; to the Books of Psalms and Proverbs, the Song of Songs, and the stories of Ruth and Esther. * This is a great introduction for both Christians and Jews who are curious about the differences between Hebrew Scripture and the Old Testament * There is virtually no current book written for a lay audience that covers the information in this volume * Chapters include a theological overview of each Book of the Tanakh, notes on the author(s) of each Book, a brief history, and discussions of major themes and events

From a rabbi I expect better.  May 23, 2008
I have just started reading this book and already I have found some blaring errors that should have been caught by the author if the only proofreader CIG publisher could afford is SpellCheck. The book claims that the Hebrew Bible is read LEFT TO RIGHT when it is read RIGHT TO LEFT. Thank G-d I'm not asking directions. Also the author states that Biblical Hebrew uses two consonant roots. Gee, in our Hebrew School the text teaches the 3 consonant Shoresh as the root of all words. And again. Page 27, Studying vs. Reading: "Most people can study...using English translations...there's a difference between reading Scripture and studying it," making one believe one "reads" Hebrew and "studies" in English. The author goes on to say that if "you're serious about studying ... as opposed to reading" you can find sources of Biblical Hebrew instruction. Now which is it? If you are "studying" the English translation and just "reading" Biblical Hebrew then why would you need Hebrew instruction? This is just plain sloppy work for the first 3 chapters. If the rest of the book is decent, how would I know? How much of it is in error? What of it can I believe now that my confidence in the author's expertise has been shattered?
The Complete Idiot's Guide to Hebrew Scripture   Mar 26, 2007
I found The Complete Idiot's Guide to Hebrew Scripture a fantastic guide to the history of Jewish Scripture. I am a Jewish History teacher, and I used The Complete Idiot's Guide to Hebrew Scripture to help organize my class curriculum (Samuel Judges, King David, and the story of The Book of Ester are just some of the topics that I found helpful in this book). The Complete Idiot's Guide to Hebrew Scripture is also helpful because the topics are well organized and clearly stated. In addition, the book provides interesting commentaries that help enhance the subject matter (bring the history alive). I would definitely recommend The Complete Idiot's Guide to Hebrew Scripture to anyone who is interested in the history of Jewish Scripture. Furthermore, I believe this is a very helpful resource for students and should be a required classroom text.

Complete Idiot's Guide to Hebrew Scriptures  Apr 3, 2006
For someone who wants basic information about Hebrew Scriptures, this book is a good starting point. However, I did find typographical errors and even a bit of misinformation (re the matter of Obadiah being the shortest book in Scriptures and on a previous page, it had been erroneously stated that Habakkuk was the shortest book). Anyway, the book was not over my head, nor was it too simplified. It's a good way to whet one's appetite and understand Hebrew writings. Both Jews and non-Jews can appreciate this volume.
