Reviews

"Deserves to be the most widely read book on the Bible in years, perhaps decades." --Jewish Exponent "Not only is Zornberg's book leagues removed from popular trivializations, it also does what all successful midrash is meant to do: open up new perspectives on ancient texts." --Commonweal "A sinewy, powerful, and hauntingly beautiful reanimation of the ancient text of early Israel and of their heroes and heroines." --Publishers Weekly "Spectacular readings . . . A beautiful and arresting exercise in biblical literary criticism; highly recommended." --Library Journal "Zornberg brings a brilliant mastery of psychology, literature, and Judaismto bear on the Bible . . . This is an extraordinary book." --The Jerusalem Report
