Buried Treasure: Hidden Wisdom from the Hebrew Language

Overview

You may see ancient Hebrew script as two-dimensional -- ink on a page. But popular scholar Rabbi Daniel Lapin brings "the Lord's language" to life, showing you how (unlike English) each Hebrew word -- like a gold nugget, an exquisite jewel, or a fiber-optic cable line -- contains rich 3-D messages as well.

Overview

You may see ancient Hebrew script as two-dimensional -- ink on a page. But popular scholar Rabbi Daniel Lapin brings "the Lord's language" to life, showing you how (unlike English) each Hebrew word -- like a gold nugget, an exquisite jewel, or a fiber-optic cable line -- contains rich 3-D messages as well. Dig for these, says the rabbi, and you'll tap into a new depth of meaning for your life today!

"Closer to mathematics than language," says the author, "Hebrew is an intricately coded system of symbols describing how humans can effectively relate to one another, to their surroundings, and to God." Understand the significance of your dining room table, your neighbor's handshake -- even your refuse bin! -- through the symbols that represent them.

Bite-sized, personal stories illustrate subterranean treasures of truth that will amaze and refresh you -- and draw you closer to the Genius who deposited them for your delightful discovery.
