." . . all who carefully read this book are in for a deeply rewarding experience. . . ." -Prof. Marvin R. Wilson, Author of Our Father Abraham: Jewish Roots of the Christian Faith"A fascinating, learned, and wide-ranging commentary that creatively blends the insights of ancients, medievals, moderns, and post-moderns. . .Readers will enjoy this book." -Prof. Warren Zev Harvey, [Chair, Department of Jewish Thought], The Hebrew University of Jerusalem "The book is a profound exploration of the important metaphors, symbols and archetypal structures of Genesis. . . . Most remarkable about this stunning array of insights is that it leaves space for personal discovery, and time to hear the beat of heart-thoughts behind the words." -Paul Pines, author of My Brother's Madness "[Birth and Rebirth through Genesis: A Timeless Theological Conversation] is spiritually fresh and relevant for a new generation of readers regardless of their religious background and faith." -Rabbi Dr. Zalman Schachter-Shalomi, co-author of Jewish with Feeling "While this is a book written by a rabbi well-versed in the rabbinic tradition, one cannot read more than a few pages to discover that his research, his interests, and his appreciation of critical thought span the centuries of both Jewish thought and Christian, while encompassing the best of the non-faith-bound philosophers of these same millennia. . . . Rabbi Samuel is fearless in drawing on their works and their thinking in order to provoke his reader to leap beyond the well-worn paths of the past." -Allan C. Emery III, PhD, Senior Editor of Hendrickson Publishers. "Birth and Rebirth Through Genesis . . . adroitly moderates a virtual conver-sation between traditions and thinkers. This book is a wondrous springboard into a rewarding dialogue between biblical scholarship and the philosophical perspective." -Micah D. Halpern, author of THUGS, The Micah Report, and Jewish Legal Writings by Women
