Non-Fiction
And God Said: How Translations Conceal the Bible's Original Meaning. "For centuries, translations of the Bible have obscured our understanding and appreciation of the original text. Now, And God Said provides readers with an authoritative account of significant mistranslations and shows how new translation methods can give readers their first glimpse into what the Bible really means. Acclaimed translator Hoffman tackles such issues as what's wrong with the Ten Commandments (starting with the word 'commandments'), the correct description of the 'virgin' birth, and the surprisingly modern message in the Song of Solomon, as well as many other unexpected and thought-provoking revelations."

In The Beginning: A Short History of the Hebrew Language. "Hebrew as a language is just over 3,000 years old, and the story of its alphabet is unique among the languages of the world. Hebrew set the stage for almost every modern alphabet, and was arguably the first written language simple enough for everyone, not just scribes, to learn, making it possible to make a written record available to the masses for the first time. Hoffman follows and decodes the adventure that is the history of Hebrew in this lively volume packed with information about language, linguistics, and history."

Fiction
The Warwick Files (writing as "J.M. Hoffman"). "A police chief with a secretive past. A quiet New York City suburb. And, officilaly, no spies. Hoffman's foray into fiction takes the reader on a series of thrilling adventures in what was almost a quiet suburban village."
