editor Rabbi Abraham Cohen,This vast work, painstakingly prepared by scholars under the general editorship of Rabbi Abraham Cohen, contains the complete Hebrew text and an elegant and lucid verse-by-verse translation, as well as an illuminating commentary digest based on the works of classical scholars. Used in English-speaking countries for more than half a century, this masterful series has become the classic English rendering of the Bible. Extensive introductions provide invaluable help in understanding each book's purpose. With its compact, practical size and distinctive format, this is the most accessible and complete text for all students of the Bible. Each volume contains an index and a bibliography. In my relentless, paintaking research, I have come to the conclusion that this 14 volume set comes closest to monothestic paleo hebrew than any I have found. But of course the verdict is still out.
