Product Details


“I know of no other book that presents the enormous subtleties and complexities of rabbinic biblical interpretation with such skill, intelligence, literary flair, and sheer elegance of style. Quite simply, a masterpiece.”
—The Washington Post Book World
“What is exciting about Zornberg’s work is not solely her use of varied sources, but her objective in their use . . . So great is her love of, reverence for, and belief in Torah, it is contagious.”
—The Catholic Worker
“All students of the Bible will be grateful for the opportunity to study with a teacher of such dazzling intelligence.”
—Kirkus Reviews
“Zornberg is one of Jerusalem’s most exciting teachers of Torah, not only because of the subtlety of her thinking but also because of the beauty of her language and the sophistication of her presentation . . . Engaging and brilliant.”
