Gifts of the Jews

by Paul S on Nov 16, 2013

I recommend reading this before reading the old testament. Cahill's work is an indispensable compact history of the Hebrew people, and brings out their unique contribution to the philosophy of individualism.. The timeline at the back makes everything fall into place. More

The useful picture of pre-Biblical society does not excuse the Author's inaccurate suppositions regarding the personalities, character and motivations of Biblical characters which conflict with boat-loads of primary sources. Overall, it's a silly book. More
