By Itzhak Benyamini
In this ebook Itzhak Benyamini offers an alternate interpreting of Genesis, an in depth textual research from the tale of production to the binding of Isaac. This interpreting deals the opportunity of a tender relation to God, now not one characterised through worry and awe. the amount offers Don-Abraham-Quixote now not as a perpetual knight of religion yet as a crafty believer within the face of God's calls for of him. Benyamini reads Genesis with no making concessions to God, asking approximately Him earlier than He examines the guts of Adam, Noah, Abraham, and the opposite knights of religion (if they're quite that). during this means, the remark on Genesis turns into a platform for a brand new form of severe theology. via this unconventional rereading of the favourite biblical textual content, the publication makes an attempt to extract a distinct ethic, one who demanding situations the Kierkegaardian call for of blind religion in an all-knowing ethical God and provides in its stead another, daily ethic. The ethic that Benyamini uncovers is characterised via kin continuity and culture meant to make sure that very axis—familial permanence and resilience within the face of the hard and capricious legislations of God and the typical hardships of lifestyles.
