Rabbi Sir Jonathan Sacks has written a wonderful, valuable reading of Genesis. This work is profoundly important for people of all faiths, and it would be of great benefit to agnostic and atheistic persons.
His subject matter is the book of Genesis, and his reading of this book is based not only on his knowledge of Torah but his understanding of Western philosophy, so he readily illustrates points which I found quite valuable, such as the difference between Aristotle's view of God and Abraham's relation with God.
I know that atheism is now a popular attachment. Few readers of Dawkins and Hitchens could read this work without doubting their popular beliefs.
This is a wonderful book by a great writer and a great thinker.

This book presents a thoughtful, committed reader with a collection of beautifully written insights into the portions of the week , that are not only thoughtful and provocative, but also help make the Torah relevant for today.Was this review helpful?
