In The Bonding of Isaac, Joel Lurie Grishaver shows how the rabbinic tradition teaches that our understandings of male and female psychology are pathways to understanding the complex and dynamic nature of the One God. For the rabbis, gender was not only a psychological truth, but a spiritual and theological one as well. Difficult issues such as brit milah, belief in God, spiritual loneliness, aging and death are all topics that make their way into this fascinating and unforgettable journey. Mr. Grishaver weaves together biblical and rabbinic texts with sociological and psychological literature, revealing the soulful bedrock of the rabbinic tradition.
