I am excited to announce that the next book in the Mystic Heart Series will be Avivah Gottlieb Zornberg’s latest book, Moses: A Human Life. She is a scholar and prolific writer who compassionately and directly sets before us the hidden knowledge of biblical text where lost desire, lost language and lost prayer await our arrival. With the intimacy of an objective heart of deep knowing, understanding and tenderness, she gently whispers an invitation. Avivah invites us to be provoked by Moses – to be called and challenged to know and remember as she moves us from birth to death, following the life of a soul journeying home to the divine feminine, awakening desire, language, and prayer.
Maron L. Waxman – September 8, 2016 writes: Moses: A Human Life challenges readers to see Moses in an original and thought-provoking way — not as a leader or a prophet, but as a man whose disabilities and conflicts make him uniquely qualified to speak for God and to achieve God’s purpose. Only when his nation’s long journey is almost finished does Moses speak to them in his own voice, recalling his memory of the Exodus and journey through the desert. Zornberg illustrates a touching picture of a man whose speech is limited but reaches not only his people — God’s chosen people — but the hopes and future of all humanity. Index, notes.
