Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Where is God? What are angels? Who made them? Such questions have arisen over the ages and are answered with a type of story Jews call Midrash-Midrashim in the plural. The Hebrew word means "search and explain." The search takes place in the pages of the Bible. The explanation, the Midrash, is based on an answer found in those pages. New stories led to others, and eventually to a vast library of Midrashim. A selection of these have been woven into the stories in this book, retellings from the Book of Genesis: from Creation to the world of angels, the fall of Satan, Cain and Abel, the Emerald Book of Secrets, good King Methuselah, Noah and Naamah, and the binding of Isaac. Stunning woodcut illustrations accompany these graceful, witty stories in a book that will illuminate familiar texts in a thought-provoking and entertaining way.
