About the Book



Originally published: Genesis. Philadelphia: Jewish Publication Society, c1995.



Book Synopsis



Winner of the National Jewish Book Award

Since its publication in 1995, The Beginning of Desire has opened new pathways in the reading of the Bible. Avivah Gottlieb Zornberg's innovative use of midrash, literature, philosophy, and psychoanalysis draws deeply upon the familiar biblical narratives to produce interpretations that are at once startlingly beautiful and completely authentic. Illuminating the tensions that grip human beings as they search for an encounter with God, Zornberg gives us a brilliant analysis of the stories of Adam and Eve; Noah; Abraham and Sarah; Isaac and Rebecca; Jacob, Rachel, and Leah; and Joseph and his brothers.



Review Quotes




"Deserves to be the most widely read book on the Bible in years, perhaps decades."
--Jewish Exponent

"Not only is Zornberg's book leagues removed from popular trivializations, it also does what all successful midrash is meant to do: open up new perspectives on ancient texts."
--Commonweal

"A sinewy, powerful, and hauntingly beautiful reanimation of the ancient text of early Israel and of their heroes and heroines."
--Publishers Weekly

"Spectacular readings . . . A beautiful and arresting exercise in biblical literary criticism; highly recommended."
--Library Journal

"Zornberg brings a brilliant mastery of psychology, literature, and Judaismto bear on the Bible . . . This is an extraordinary book."
--The Jerusalem Report
