The book pursues a "close reading" of the biblical verses that it has chosen for reflection and of selected rabbinic sources that relate to these verses. Whereas some commentaries feel it a virtue to impose agreement between divergent traditions, the aim of Destination Torah is to allow each precious text to impart its own message. At the book's heart is the biblical revelation as a coherent whole, setting out to replace an older mythological perception of ourselves and our physical and spiritual world with its Torah view. That view is Destination Torah's quest.
