Item Description...
Regarded throughout the English-speaking world as the standard English translation of the Jewish Scriptures (Old Testament), the JPS TANAKH has been acclaimed by scholars, rabbis, lay leaders, Jews, and Christians alike. The JPS TANAKH is an entirely original translation of the Jewish 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 BC, when 72 elders of the tribes of Israel created the Greek translation of Jewish 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. Features:
  • Table of Scriptural Readings
  • Complete text of the Jewish Scriptures (Old Testament)
  • 4" x 6" x 1"
  • Softcover
  • 6-point text
  • Double column
  • Presentation page

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Not For The Visually Impaired!!!  Mar 22, 2008
I was excited about ordering a portable copy of the JPS Scriptures. I am a 38 year old male and the denim cover art looked appealing. I received my copy yesterday and the cover is a nice durable paper material. The only problem with this low cost version of the Scriptures is that the print size is very, very small. I realize the target audience for this product is the teenage group and perhaps those in their early twenties. (I can't remember if my eyesight was good enough to read this small print even when I was a teenager)
I'm not sure of the exact type size but I am guessing that it is 6.0 text. This is a nice item for those with super reading vision but not for those of us with diminishing vision. Great for the younger person who needs a portable copy of the Scriptures to take along wherever they may go. The new cover styles are attractive and appealing for a younger generation. Personally......I like the denim!
