Product Description

Midrash represents an intellectual sifting of a text of Scripture to fully understand its significance and application. As opposed to simple, literal readings, it seeks out new, hitherto neglected layers of meaning. Sasso winsomely explores this process, translating and interpreting 20 essential texts. 200 pages, softcover. Paraclete.

Publisher's Description

The ancient rabbis believed that the Torah was divinely revealed and therefore contained eternal truths and multitudinous hidden meanings. Not a single word was considered haphazard or inconsequential. This understanding of how Scripture mystically relates to all of life is the fertile ground from which the Midrash emerged. 

Here Rabbi Sandy Eisenberg Sasso explores how Midrash originated and how it is still practiced today, and offers new translations and interpretations of twenty essential, classic midrashic texts. You will never read the Bible the same way again!

Author Bio

In this book Rabbi Sasso provides a straightforward discussion of the Jewish tradition of midrash—interpretation of Scripture—and how this practice can nourish one’s spiritual life. A lovely, rich, and inspiring read, Midrash: Reading the Bible with question marks would benefit Christian and Jewish readers, as well as secular individuals interested in the many ways to understand the Bible." —Light to Read By
