We think of the "Hebrew Bible" as the Book - and yet it was produced by a largely nonliterate culture in which writing, editing, copying, interpretation, and public reading were the work of a professional elite. The scribes of ancient Israel are indeed the main figures behind the "Hebrew Bible", and in this book Karel van der Toorn tells their story for the first time.
