Translating the Hebrew Bible

Professor Robert Alter was translating portions of the Hebrew Bible when Roberta Ahmanson asked him, "Are you going to do the whole thing?" Years later, Robert Alter has completed and published the full Bible with a complete new translation and commentary. Religion Unplugged's Senior Contributor and Board Member Roberta Ahmanson interviewed Dr. Alter on the process of creating the new translation, why it was needed, and what's next.
