Genesis: a living conversation

1st ed.
The stories in the Book of Genesis captured our ancestors' imagination thousands of years ago--and they speak to us today. InGenesis, acclaimed television journalist Bill Moyers explores the contemporary relevance of the ageless wisdom from the Bible's epic first book. Creation, temptation, murder, exile, and family strife--these themes emerge from every page of Genesis as fresh as the morning headlines or the evening news. Genesis invites readers into a lively and accessible discussion of the manifold meanings of these stories, and engages us in a fascinating exploration of the relationship between interpreter and text. Among the four dozen writers, theologians, artists, and thinkers in the series are Mary Gordon, John Barth, Faye Kellerman, Samuel D. Proctor, Phyllis Trible, Avivah Gottlieb Zornberg, Walter Brueggemann, Robert Alter, Oscar Hijuelos, Leon R. Kass, Elaine H. Pagels, Charles Johnson, Stephen Mitchell, Bharati Mukherjee, Seyyed Hossein Nasr, Elizabeth Swados, Burton L. Visotzky, and Renita J. Weems--a dazzling, multilayered chorus of voices.
