In undertaking this estimable assignment, M. Fleg has left for posterity a unique biography of the man of God at whose death the earth and heaven and the Lord God Himself wept, saying There shall be no other Moses.What emerges from this retelling is a figure no less majestical than in the Bible story, but certainly more accessible to the modern mind. In Flegs draft, Moses, who lived 4,000 years ago, somehow is brought into focus so that his pilgrimage and his walk with God become an inspiration and an encouragement to all who would seek Gods face.This fine translation by the English scholar Stephen Haden Guest, long out of print, is here reissued as part of an ongoing effort to keep biblical classics available to the reading public.
