And … three more on the stack for this summer’s reading:
Psychological Biblical Criticism by Andrew Kille. Using the insights of psychology is not a new enterprise in Biblical studies, but Kille starts to make it into its own genre.
A Heart Afire is Zalman Schachter-Shalomi’s classic collection of stories from the early Hasidic masters. Familiar names like the Ba’al Shem Tov are scattered across its pages.
Speaking of the Ba’al Shem Tov, Menachem Kallus has gathered together guidance for the contemplative life from the Ba’al Shem and his circle in his Pillar of Prayer.
So much to read, so little time!
