This is a companion volume to a series of public television programs led by Bill Moyers in which writers and religious thinkers discussed episodes from the first book of the Bible. Among the participants are Burton Visotzky, a rabbi who initiated the conversations which gave rise to the series, "ElainePagels, Karen Armstrong, . . . John Barth, and Oscar Hijuelos. The book is divided by biblical tale (Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel, the blinding of Isaac) with five or six of the participants discussing the moral, literary, and personal meanings of the stories. In the discussion of Cain and Abel, for instance, the discussion ranges from a debate over God's complicity in Abel's murder to the question of how a writer assesses the characters' motivations." The stories in the Book of Genesis captured our ancestors' imagination thousands of years ago - and they speak to us today. In Genesis, acclaimed television journalist Bill Moyers explores the contemporary relevance of the ageless wisdom from the Bible's epic first book. Creation, temptation, murder, exile, and family strife - these themes emerge from every page of Genesis as fresh as the morning headlines or the evening news. Genesis invites readers into a lively and accessible discussion of the manifold meanings of these stories, and engages us in a fascinating exploration of the relationship between interpreter and tent. Among the four dozen writers, theologians, artists, and thinkers in the series are Mary Gordon, John Barth, Faye Kellerman, Samuel D. Proctor, Phyllis Trible, Avivah Gottlieb Zornberg, Walter Brueggemann, Robert Alter, Oscar Hijuelos, Leon R. Kass, Elaine H. PageIs, Charles Johnson, Stephen Mitchell, Bharati Mukherjee, Seyyed Hossein Nasr, Elizabeth Swados, Renita J. Weems - a dazzling, multilayered chorus of voices. With the same interplay of text, photographs, and art that made The Power of Myth and Healing and the Mind so dynamic and unforgettable, Genesis has the capacity to enrich people's lives intellectually and spiritually.
