Černošský Pán Bůh a páni Izraeliti ; Starej zákon a proroci by Roark Bradford( Book )
9 editions published between 1957 and 2012 in Czech and held by 18 libraries worldwide
Humorná parafráze Starého zákona vypráví biblické příběhy od stvoření Adama a Evy až po osudy starozákonných proroků. Autor vychází z folkloru amerických černochů a přejímá jejich interpretaci náboženských dějů, která živelně tíhne k pozemské konkretnosti a odmítá všechnu mystiku. Biblické osoby včetně Pána Boha vystupují jako obýčejní lidé, jejich stylisované projevy a příběhy jsou přetvářeny podle představ utlačovaného černošského lidu. Tím vzniká pásmo bezbožných příběhů, jejichž komika vyplývá z kontrastu mezi náboženskou předlohou a jejím svérázným, mnohdy naturalistickým přepisem. - Dílo vychází ve starém, nezměněném překladu J. Macha, k němuž jsou přidány dvě nové kapitoly
