“Joel Hoffman’s book, And God Said: How Translations Conceal the Bible’s Original Meaning, is just invaluable for in-depth study of the Bible…. Using linguistics (in a remarkably clear and non-intimidating way), Hoffman describes the different kinds of information conveyed by a Biblical text, and then works out the methodology by which one can best understand the text…. Just an outstanding book. Really, a necessary book….
You all have to read it.”
