Bob's Bible The Twelve and The Books of Truth

Over the last two weeks, two more volumes of Bob's Bible, have appeared, The Twelve and The Books of Truth. These are volumes 4 and 5 of my translation of the Tanakh, (a.k.a. the Old Testament) done with an ear to the music and assisted for concordance by a number of algorithms to help me, the translator, remember my decisions and compromises consistently.

Each volume has its own introduction with examples. The translation stands alone without any Hebrew except in the musical examples. There are over 300 examples, at least 1 every 3 to 5 chapters on average. They are the Bible's own illustrations. The Bible doesn't come with visuals, but it does come with music. It is meant to be sung. The ear is the critical organ for human development. The eye is a marvel, but it is prone to short-circuits, too often putting its own power 'in charge' based on what is 'sees'. Real listening requires that we slow down.
