Abstract:

"Here is a glimpse into two great minds, as each author approaches the text from his unique perspective, each seeking an understanding of the Bible's personalities and commandments, paradoxes and ambiguities. Kushner offers his words of Torah with a conversational enthusiasm that ranges from family dynamics to the Kabbalah; Mamet challenges the reader, often beginning his comment far afield - with Freud or the American judiciary - before returning to a text now wholly reinterpreted."--BOOK JACKET.
