In this picture, He, Himself, is, of course, the central figure , to which all details are subordinate. I have tried to present His acts and words as they would strike those who first saw or heard them, and have added only as much elucidation to the latter as seemed needed. All His Sayings and Discourses are given in full, for a Life in which He is not His own interpreter, must be defective. " .

It is, as Carasik demonstrates, not a remote text reserved for churches and synagogues, but rather a human document full of history, poetry, politics, theology, and spirituality. Using historic, linguistic, anthropological, and theological sources, Carasik helps us distinguish between the Jewish Bibel's vocies - the mythic, the historical, the prophetic, the theological, and the legal. In these contrasts we encounter the Bible anew, as a living work whose many voices tell us about the world out of which the Bible grew - and the world that it created.

He foresees a time when science will no longer limit itself to merely describing what people do in the name of 'morality'; in principle, science should be able to tell us what we 'ought' to do to live the best lives possible.
