The Commentators' Bible: Deuteronomy
The Rubin JPS Miqra’ot Gedolot
Edited, translated, and annotated by Michael Carasik

2015. 296 pp.
$75.00 s

First published five hundred years ago as the “Rabbinic Bible,” the biblical commentaries known as Miqra’ot Gedolot have inspired and educated generations of Hebrew readers. With this fourth volume of the acclaimed English edition, the voices of Rashi, Ibn Ezra, Nachmanides, Rashbam, and other medieval Bible commentators come alive once more, speaking in a contemporary English translation annotated and explicated for lay readers.
  Each page of this volume contains several verses from the book of Deuteronomy, surrounded by both the 1917 and the 1985 JPS translations and by new contemporary English translations of the major commentators. This edition also includes introductory material, a glossary of terms, a list of names used in the text, notes on source texts, essays on special topics, and resources for further study.

Michael Carasik teaches biblical Hebrew at the University of Pennsylvania and presents the weekly Torah Talk podcast. He is the compiler and translator of the Rubin JPS Miqra’ot Gedolot Commentators’ Bible series, and author of Theologies of the Mind in Biblical Israel and The Bible’s Many Voices (JPS, 2014).

“The JPS Commentators' Bible is one of the most useful resources I now have in my library. It opens the door to the wisdom of the classic commentators to Jewish students of all levels of Hebrew fluency. The translations are fluid and accessible, and this important work represents an invaluable invitation to join the centuries-long conversation of Torah commentary and interpretation.  I eagerly await the completion of the remaining volumes of The Rubin JPS Miqra’ot Gedolot.”—Rabbi Dan Levin, Temple Beth El, Boca Raton, Florida

“Anyone who is unfamiliar with medieval commentary, or who is unable to study the commentators in the original Hebrew, will find The Commentators’ Bible a worthy addition to their book shelves. Carasik has done a real service making this material available.”—The Reporter

"A handy and welcome contribution for those who want to read the key comments by the major Jewish medieval commentators."—Kenneth Bergland, Bulletin for Biblical Research
