The Latin Torah: Fresh Translations of Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy

The Latin Torah: Fresh Translations of
Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers,
 is a new presentation of
the oldest portion of the Bible.  
Torah, a
Hebrew word meaning "teaching," is the
collective name for the Bible's first five
books.  The documents within it have
existed in some form since at least the
reign of King Solomon, some ten
centuries before Christ.  

This book of books and the God
revealed in it are sacred alike to Jews,
Christians, and Muslims.  The Vulgate
version of
Torah was painstakingly
crafted by Saint Jerome in the late 4th
Century of the Christian Era, at the apex
of seven centuries of biblical scholarship
in many languages.

The Latin Torah, John Cunyus
renders Jerome's ancient, Latin version
into contemporary English, in a
verse-by-verse translation.  

In the
Latin-English Edition, each verse
of Latin is followed by a verse of English.
Stripped of all extraneous commentary
and opinion, this book strives to present
the heart of scripture in as
straightforward a way as possible.  

English Edition with Commentary
contains the full footnote apparatus and
introductions for each book.

An Endorsement
"John, your translations
are splendid! I hope
everyone will ask their
local library to obtain a
copy and buy one
personally. I find your
translations both direct
and elegant and
profoundly refreshing!"
