And God Said free pdf "An authoritative account of significant mistranslations in the Bible--and how new methods give readers their first glimpse into what the Bible really means

And God Said "uncovers the often inaccurate or misleading English translations of the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament that quotes from it. Sometimes the familiar English is just misleading. Other times, the mistakes are more substantial. But the errors are widespread, including:

- What's wrong with the Ten Commandments (starting with the word "commandments")

- The mistaken description of a "virgin" birth

- The surprisingly modern message in the Song of Solomon

Hoffman sheds light on the original intention of the text, uniting the topics of religion, language, and linguistics to offer the first modern understanding since the Bible was written.
