And God Said dares to face the problem that centuries of mistranslation have made the Bible – including our most familiar understandings – less available to us. Hoffman asserts the underlying sameness of all human languages to decode and recover the clarity of the Bible’s original messages. He unites Biblical scholarship and translation theory, embracing modern science and modern linguistics, to help us understand what the Prophets and our forebears were doing and how they wrote. He retrieves what the Bible really was and what it can be for us now.
