About-

Genesis Ideology explores the purpose of stories in the book of Genesis as building blocks for ancient Israelite culture. This book exposes the intersection of the author’s ideological agenda and the contemporary reader’s interpretive practice. This volume, written for a general readership, is informed by contemporary scholarly approaches to biblical literature as well as questions of contemporary relevance.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“On very rare occasions, a book appears that screams, ‘Read me!’ Genesis Ideology is such a book. In clear and cogent language, David Aaron provides an original framework for understanding the book of Genesis in light of the ideological concerns of its authors. Drawing on his vast knowledge of Ancient Near Eastern literature and modern literary theory, Aaron allows seemingly familiar biblical passages to yield novel, ethical, and religious meanings. This book will richly reward its readers!”

—David Ellenson, Director, Schusterman Center for Israel Studies, Brandeis University; Chancellor Emeritus, former President, Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion
