This is an auction for MOSES by Martin Buber.

"Martin Buber, scholar, philosopher, theologian, and Bible translator, is now considered one of the great thinkers and spiritual authorities of the 20th century. As a work of his late maturity, Moses offers the possibility to review Buber's longstanding concern with Scripture. It is in this book that Buber's methodological presuppositions about biblical language and stylistics, and his views on the enduring value of the Bible's religious teachings, come to clear expression."

"FIVE STARS!!! Moses is probably the most readable of Martin Buber's longer Biblical studies. It combines a sense of narrative movement with ingenious interpretations (often backed by formidable, if now obsolete, scholarship, almost always tucked away in endnotes), rhapsodies on freedom and the desert, reflections on the experiences described as miracles, and some hard political thought. For those familiar with traditional Jewish biblical interpretation, its influence on Buber's thought, and his willingness to work out implications by suggesting supplements to the biblical narrative, will be apparent. Some readers, looking for traditional religious edification, will find Buber's presentation too rationalistic and secular. If you approach "Moses" as the work of a religious philosopher with a strong interest in social issues, and a willingness to take the ancient text very seriously, but not literally, you will find much of interest."
