Genesis: The Beginning of Desire
Aviva Gottlieb Zornberg

1996. 480 pp.
$34.95 t

An intellectually stimulating and personally uplifting exploration of Genesis. Genesis: the Beginning of Desire breathes new life into the stories of Adam and Eve, Noah, Abraham and Sarah, Isaac, Jacob and Esau, Rachel, and Joseph. Zornberg brings biblical, midrashic, and literary sources together, weaving them into a seamless tapestry and illuminating the tensions that grip human beings as they search for and encounter God.
Avivah Gottlieb Zornberg was born in England to a rabbinic family. She studied at Gateshead seminary and at Cambridge University, where she received her PhD. She has taught to students in Israel at MaTaN, Jerusalem College for Adults, Midreshet Lindenbaum, and Pardes Institute, and lectures widely in the United States, Canada, and England. Zornberg is also the author of Particulars of Rapture: Reflections on Exodus (2001) and of The Murmuring Deep: Reflections on the Biblical Unconscious (2009).
