Translating Torah---A Review Essay

Barry L. Bandstra


The spate of recent translations and treatments of the Hebrew book of Genesis drives Barry Bandstra to probe their varying approaches to rendering the original, as well as each approach's pragmatic effect on the reader. Robert Alter's, Stephen Mitchell's, and Bill Moyers' volumes on Genesis are included in the mix, as well as Everett Fox's translation of the entire Pentateuch. Mr. Bandstra teaches Hebrew Bible at Hope College.
