For thousands of years, the stories contained within the Torah—the first five books of the Hebrew Bible—have been passed down, revered, studied, and wondered at. From Adam and Eve, Noah and the Flood, and Abraham’s near-sacrifice of Isaac, through Jacob and his twelve sons, Joseph and his coat of many colors, and finally to Moses, who led his people out of slavery in Egypt and accepted God’s Ten Commandments, these stories tell the history of the Jewish people and their relationship with God.

In this unique volume, author Amy Ehrlich adapts the five books of the Torah into a single narrative, focusing on the familiar stories and figures while retaining the complex beauty of the sacred text. Fine artist Daniel Nevins brings these stories to resonant life with his evocative and luminous paintings. The result is a gift for listeners and families to savor, share, and treasure.

  • “Even readers who are not at all skeptical about the Bible may find that they need this version; it’s so beautiful and new. Ehrlich’s transcendent verse translation renders these familiar stories as shocking, perplexing and remarkably compelling—just as they always have been.”
