Program Locations:

Mid-Manhattan Library

The author argues that the Bible can be studied for its philosophical insights, whether or not one believes in God and shows how the authors of the Bible used narrative and prophetic poetry to advance universal arguments about questions of ethics and politics, truth and reason, faith and being.  He transforms our understanding of what the stories of Abel, Abraham, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, David and Solomon, and the speeches of Isaiah and Jeremiah, were meant to teach us.
