The Aleppo Codex

 

 

You will think you are watching a movie, even though you are reading a book.  Matti Friedman, the author is just that good at describing scenes which invoke imagery in the mind; and characters who you can virtually see and hear talking.  The cover of my book, published in 2012, says, "A true story of obsession, faith, and the pursuit of an ancient Bible."  If you like mystery, adventure, the beauty and intrigue of foreign locales, you will be absolutely riveted by this book; and to top it all off, it has to do with an ancient mansucript of the Bible; and it's a true story!  Okay, you get it, it's a great book.  Now all you have to do is get the book from the church library and let me know what you think when you're done.  Maybe we'll include your comments here too.  

Matti Friedman's work as a reporter has taken him from Lebanon to Morocco, Cairo, Moscow, and Washington, D.C., and to conflicts in Israel and the Caucasus.  He has been a correspondent for the Associated Press, where he specialized in religion and archaeology in Israel and the Palestinian territories, and for the Jerusalem Report, and he currently writes for the Times of Israel.  He grew up in Toronto and lives in Jerusalem.
