Kudos to our own Joel Kaminsky

The Abingdon Introduction to the Bible: Understanding Jewish and Christian Scriptures, co-authored by Joel Kaminsky, Morningstar Professor of Jewish Studies and professor of religion, has been selected by the American Library Association’s Choice magazine as a 2014 Outstanding Academic Title. Kaminsky’s book offers an accessible, scholarly perspective on the Bible, drawing on Jewish, Protestant and Catholic interpretations.
