By Henry A. Zoob

for plenty of readers of the Bible, there are significant stumbling blocks to the joy of scripture: comprehension and relevancy. In a life of Genesis, Rabbi Zoob seeks to assist the reader conquer those hindrances. In transparent, logical prose, Rabbi Zoob explains the process the Covenant of Abraham in Genesis and the way each one significant player--Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Sarah, Rebekah, Rachel, and Leah--has an influence at the improvement and continuity of the Covenant of Abraham. He solves the relevancy challenge via sharing tales from his existence which are attached to the patriarchal and matriarchal occasions and subject matters in each one past bankruptcy. for instance, following an research of the problem of infertility that Abraham and Sarah confronted, he tells the tale of ways he and his spouse Barbara struggled via 13 years of childlessness.

Rabbi Zoob hopes that his use of this midrashic procedure to find own insights will inspire the reader to do the same.

"Zoob's paintings is partly an enlightening research of the Covenant of Israel because it develops within the publication of Genesis. but, its strength lies in his immersion into the narratives of Genesis which impel him to recollect and relive his personal lifestyles trip at the same time it calls for our personal self-reflection. His booklet is chock filled with insights spawned by means of the Biblical characters on the way to problem each smooth reader."

"A life of Genesis is the fruit of a life of rabbinic studying. it's heartfelt, discovered, inspiring and, in particular, clever. whereas many clergy have written autobiographies, to my wisdom, none have listed their lives via a booklet of the Bible. Zoob without problems shuttles among severe biblical scholarship and candid--even searing--reflections on his personal lifestyles and rabbinic instructing. the result's a compelling kaleidoscope of Jewish thought."

"This is an outstanding publication. It makes an unique and robust argument for the importance of covenant in Genesis, and it really is with no qualification the main sincere and entire autobiography of an American rabbi we own. Brilliantly, Rabbi Zoob hyperlinks those in a riveting research of Genesis and a desirable memoir."
