Verily, in that are indeed signs for a people who reflect" [al-Room 30:21]. Make your journal personal. Or, better, from inspecting one of a large number of works which have come in since the Cambridge History: the handbooks, which tell all about the authors, such as Chaucer, Shakespeare, Milton, and carry voluminous bibliographies; or the period books, which tell a good deal about whole periods of literature.

Beyond the Cyborg: Adventures with Donna Haraway. People have been telling stories and sharing responses to stories since the beginning of time. The authors, dissociating themselves from the old schools of Bible Criticism, tried hard to hear the genuine "voice" of the Torah, and therefore moved closer to the traditional Jewish approach than any of their predecessors.
