It is a book cobbled together long ago over the course of many centuries by regular, flawed human beings, and yet its contents are considered sacrosanct by billions of people. But even those who consider it an infallible guide cannot agree on its meaning! And for believer and nonbeliever alike, many passages are difficult to understand, with maddeningly obscure references. (Who, or what, are the Nephilim anyway?) Surely, there must be someone who can help us come to terms with this weighty, daunting tome! Enter Dr. Robert M. Price; biblical scholar, atheist, and former Baptist pastor. In The Human Bible, Price will deconstruct and demystify this foundational book, all from a rational, secular, and non-ideological perspective—and all with a good dose of humor. For fans of history, religious studies, or literature—or of charismatic professorial types—The Human Bible is a trove of entertainment and enlightenment.

This is Vox Tablet, the weekly podcast of Tablet Magazine, the online Jewish arts and culture magazine that used to be known as Nextbook.org. Our archive of podcasts is available on our site, tablet2015.wpengine.com. Vox Tablet, hosted by Sara Ivry, varies widely in subject matter and sound -- one week it's a conversation with novelist Michael Chabon, theater critic Alisa Solomon, or anthropologist Ruth Behar. Another week brings the listener to "the etrog man" hocking his wares at a fruit-juice stand in a Jersualem market. Or into the hotel room with poet and rock musician David Berman an hour before he and his band, Silver Jews, head over to their next gig. Recent guests include Alex Ross, Shalom Auslander, Aline K. Crumb, Howard Jacobson, and the late Norman Mailer.
