Communion : contemporary writers reveal the Bible in their lives by David Rosenberg( Book )

4 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 457 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The authors in Communion, largely of Christian background, approach the Bible not primarily as a religious text, but as literary, imaginative, and cultural bedrock. By comparing their first exposure to the Bible as children, as many of the authors do, with an exploration of what the Bible means to them and to their work today, the authors reveal the concussion and reverberation of the larger Judeo-Christian, American culture on our private lives. In reexamining specific books of the Hebrew Bible and New Testament in such a personal way, the writers, essayists, and poets in Communion illuminate the text with their lives, bringing their counterparts among the Biblical authors to life as well. Such a rereading allows them to reinvigorate the Bible with new meaning, and to better reveal how the Bible has shaped and altered their thought."--Jacket

Dreams of being eaten alive : the literary core of the kabbalah by David Rosenberg( Book )

12 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and Spanish and held by 398 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"David Rosenberg, long considered the leading poet-translator of the Bible, now unveils the literary basis for the Kabbalah as the major counter-tradition in Western history. The Kabbalah becomes news once again, as Rosenberg peels back its philosophical grandeur to a bedrock of eroticism. The pleasures of the flesh and the soul become one, and our desire to be devoured by a form of knowledge greater than art itself lies exposed."--Jacket

Genesis as it is written : contemporary writers on our first stories by David Rosenberg( Book )

6 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 332 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

But in the beginning were the writers of the stories. Over the centuries, the morals and meanings that traditional readings have attached to the stories of Genesis effectively obscured the contemporary culture that produced them. Even experts and commentators have tended to miss the point: they all agree that Genesis is special, but the question of why the book was written has never properly addressed. Now, for the first time, twenty of our leading literary lights - novelists, poets, dramatists, and essayists - turn their attention to a particular story in Genesis and comment on it from the perspective of the storyteller. Together, they begin to discover the imaginative sensibilities of the ancient writer, as the very motivations of the biblical authors and their characters come to light. The result is a stunningly realized literary collection that will forever change they way you read the Bible's first stories
