Book of the Day: A thoughtful gift for thoughful readers

Cahill, Thomas, The Gifts of the Jews: How A Tribe of Nomads Changed the Way Everyone Thinks and Feels (Nan A.Talese/Anchor Doubleday, 1st ed., 7th printing, 1998). ISBN 0-385-48249-3. Trade paperback. The second volume in his series, Hinges of History, this history tells how the Jewish people rethought the very concept of time, casting off the old endless wheel of birth, death and rebirth for a new, linear, and ultimately triumphant path to eternal life. Cahill is an inspired narrator of the first rank. This copy is inscribed by Cahill on the title page. Very good condition; a timely- and timeless- gift!. HBB price: 19.95.
