"A learned and fluent, delightfully overstuffed stroll through the Gates of Eden.... Mix Harold Bloom with Stephen Jay Gould and you'll get something like Kass. A wonderfully intelligent reading of Genesis." - Kirkus Reviews, starred review "Throughout his book, Kass uses fruitful, fascinating techniques for getting at the heart of Genesis.... Innumerable times [he] makes a reader sit back and rethink what has previously been tediously familiar or baffling." - Washington Post "Extraordinary.... Its analyses and hypotheses will leave no reader's understanding of Genesis unchanged." - New York Times "It is important to state that this is a book not merely rich, but prodigiously rich with insight. Kass is a marvelous reader, sensitive and careful. His interpretations surprise again and again with their cogency and poignancy." - Jerusalem Post"
