    The Old Testament - written in ancient Israel by many different authors over the course of a thousand years - has had more meaning to more people than any other book the world has known. In a series of 24 lively lectures, Professor Levine explores selected passages from the texts known as the Old Testament, the Hebrew Bible, and the Tanakh, revealing how fresh research and findings from scholars of archaeology, cross-cultural studies, and comparative religion can deepen your understanding.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Professor Levine is a lively and sympathetic storyteller, who provides so much interesting contextual information. She helps in understanding the story within the context of the times in which they arose and also when they were written down.

    Can a couple rent by grief find renewal? Timothy Fisher’s decision to move his family from their home in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, isn’t a happy one for his wife, Hannah. Everything she knows is in Lancaster County—her mother, her home, her friends. But what choice does Hannah have? Realizing that her place is with her husband and young daughter, she reluctantly goes—but her new life is a hard adjustment. Nothing Timothy does pleases Hannah, and his best-laid plans are beginning to crumble before him.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I don't know when I have heard a more affected and stilted style of reading. What was the publisher thinking? I wanted to continue but stopped halfway thought because it was so unenjoyable as it was performed. It was just so off!
