Who authored the most ancient segments of the Bible? What is their age, and how have they endured through the ages? This book delves into the reasons why dictators, tyrants, and powerful factions have harboured such fear and loathing towards these texts, leading to relentless suppression and censorship. Even now, possession of these writings can result in dire consequences. These pivotal questions are explored in The Story of the Torah, the inaugural volume of the ‘Is the Bible a Dangerous Book?’ series of commentaries.

Beryl Lavender was born and educated in South Africa, at Rocklands Girls’ High School and the University of Natal, where she read English and History. She worked as a journalist (full-time reporter on The Eastern Province Herald) and later as a teacher of English and Divinity at Michaelhouse, a top South African public school. Beryl married Paul Lavender, South African artist and head of the art department at Michaelhouse, and they have three children and four grandchildren. Widowed, she currently lives in Buckinghamshire, UK. She has been a member of the Church of England all her life and has been studying the Bible since childhood. When she discovered that she was contributing to Bible study groups more than she was receiving from them, she decided the time had come to record all her knowledge, hence these Biblical commentaries: Already completed are The Story of the Torah, The Broken Contract, Problems, Praises and Proverbs and A Warning for Our Times—so the whole of the Old Testament. She selfpublished the first three with Xulon Press, USA. All are in everyday English and are designed for non-academics who wish to understand the Bible.
