A Woman Opens the Door to Genesis

Apr 2, 2000
Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Serious, literate, accessible prose.

Cons:Her liberty with the text may throw off people used to "literalist" Biblical reading.

Avivah Gottlieb Zornberg, an Israeli Bible scholar, has given the world in her book, The Beginning of Desire: Reflections on Genesis, an elegant, eloquent account of the first book of the collection (not the same for both) that Jews and Christians call Scripture. Well-schooled in both the traditional Jewish commentaries and modern philosophy and poetics, Zornberg opens the text in ways that this reader, trained in modern Christian Biblical study, would never have imagined. Zornberg soars beyond commonplace accounts of the Genesis narrative to incorporate not only traditional midrash (a particular style of Jewish literary commentary), but also people like Walter Benjamin, George Eliot, and Nietzsche. Her erudition can be a little scary at times, but the grace and fluidity of her writing draw the reader in again and again.
To me, this is Bible study for the 21st millenium.
