5.0 out of 5 stars Magisterial and accessible, 24 Oct 2013

I've now read both of Lord Sacks' books 'Covenant and Conversation'. They're both very easy to read.

No essay goes on for very long, and each one contains a theological nugget that stimulates my thought. Whether it's the relationship between the Golden Calf and the 2008 economic collapse, the significance of garments in the narrative, the various explanations for the parting of the Reed Sea, the meaning of the Tabernacle, or the reason why Moses kept accounts, Sacks explains the rich interpretations the rabbis have given, motivating me to go back to the original text.

This book reminds me why the Bible remains such an important document in our culture. And Sacks writes with panache.
