Author Excitedly Holding His First Book

photoThis was an exciting day!

My book is off the presses, and I received the first small shipment today.  I am thrilled beyond words!  I hope and pray that I will be able to get what I believe is the important message of What’s in It for Me? Finding Ourselves in Biblical Narratives to as wide an audience as possible. I wrote this book because I believe in the power of biblical stories–properly interpreted and understood–to transform our lives for the better.

I do not believe the Bible is literal, historical or scientific truth. I believe its truth lies in the lessons the stories can teach us that can make us better people.  I strongly believe in God, but I am convinced Biblical narratives–as I explain in the book–can have meaning for those who do not.

There is a reason more people have read he Bible, translated the Bible and written about the Bible more than any other book. I hope my slender volume will help you understand why and that it will change the way you think about your life and your place in the world.

  3. Rabbi. You mention your hopes of changing the way one thinks. Have you reconsidered in your “so called” book the fact that you consider circumcision to not be ones choice? This is an invasion on ones own body.
    Is that one of the things you consider transforming life for the better?


    1. My “so called” book has been percolating for 40 years, so I find your comment offensive. It took all of my restraint not to treat it as spam. If you want to ask a question, I’m here. If you want to be insulting, please do not comment further.
