With in-depth treatment of numerous passages in the Jewish Scripture, Michoel Stern analyzes slavery, animal sacrifices, the expulsion of the Seven Nations, and other topics troublesome to many 21st-century readers, in his new book, Is the Good Book Bad?

Stern also makes the case that a morality based on belief in God is more compelling than one based on scientific materialism. He takes on modern-day criticism with unique, nuanced content and argumentation, without making modern-day compromises on the authenticity of Scripture and how it was interpreted by the sages of the Talmud and the scholars who followed in their footsteps.
