Publisher's Description

Exploring the Hebrew Bible, Midrash, and other rabbinic writings, the Rabbi Timoner uncovers surprising insights about how God as spirit influences Jewish ideas of creation, revelation, and redemption. Written with an accessible and engaging voice, full of stories and relevant teachings, Breath of Life speaks to lay readers and scholars alike, as it pursues a new perspective on Judaism’s sacred texts. This book promises Christian readers meaningful insights on their own notions of God as Holy Spirit while giving Jewish readers a new look at their own tradition.

Editorial Reviews

"Rabbi Rachel Tinoner has given us a wonderful little book. In easy but deceptively profound language, she deftly savors the essential unknowability of God, the ubiquity of Torah and the mystery of redemption. Much more than one of those little "one religion" for people of "another religion," books, Timoner gives us an immensely literate and serious, contemporary Jewish theology. Breath of Life, despite its brevity, is a spiritual tour de force." --Rabbi Lawrence Kushner is the Emanu-El Scholar in residence at Congregation Emanu-El of San Francisco and the author several books including Kabbalah: A Love Story
