Jonah in the Shadows of Eden

Full Product Description

Yitzhak Berger advances a distinctive and markedly original interpretation of the biblical book of Jonah that resolves many of the ambiguities in the text. Berger contends that the Jonah text pulls from many inner-biblical connections, especially ones relating to the Garden of Eden. These connections provide a foundation for Berger s reading of the story, which attributes multiple layers of meaning to this carefully crafted biblical book. Focusing on Jonah's futile quest and his profoundly troubled response to God's view of the sins of humanity, Berger shows how the book paints Jonah as a pacifist no less than as a moralist."

Jonah in the Shadows of Eden by Yitzhak Berger was published by Indiana University Press in July 2016. The ISBN for Jonah in the Shadows of Eden is 9780253021298.
