With a Mighty Hand: The Story in the Torah - Amy Ehrlich, Daniel Nevins

Amy Ehrlich’s With a Mighty Hand (Candlewick, $29.99) tells the story of the Torah in clear, simple prose. Yet her writing also leaves space for the mystery and wonder of these ancient texts that have informed so much of Judaism and Christianity. Ehrlich’s text is deeply informed by the many translations of the Torah, and she has carefully chosen significant episodes to create a narrative from the myriad stories it tells. What makes this volume truly special, however, are Daniel Nevins’s incredible illustrations. His drawings are evocative and beautiful renderings that, like Ehrlich’s words, leave the reader room for interpretation. Presented poetically and artfully contextualized, With a Mighty Hand is both an accessible introduction to the ancient text and a creative reinterpretation for the educated Torah-reader. All ages. IR
