Erich Fromm’s innovative analysis of the Old Testament as a striking early example of radical humanism
The Old Testament is one of the most carefully studied books in the world’s history. It is also one of the most misunderstood. This founding text of the world’s three largest religions is also, Erich Fromm argues, an impressive radical humanist text. He sees the stories of mankind’s transition from divided clans to united brotherhood as a tribute to the human power to overcome. Filled with hopeful symbolism, You Shall Be As Gods shows how the Old Testament and its tradition is an inspiring ode to human potential.  This ebook features an illustrated biography of Erich Fromm including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author’s estate.
