From God to Verse

Here's a book I've just ordered from amazon. I went to college with Seth, and we knew him as being incredible with verse, quick on his feet, and very funny. In the past decade since college, he's written a line-by-line translation of the Torah--yes, all five books--into rhymed verse. And it's taken seriously, too: this is no parody, just a different form of the same good thing. I can't wait for my copy to come. Seth also writes a humor column for the North Adams Transcript called The Pun Also Rises.
