The Bible - a book in which everything is at the first time. Someone crying, someone laughs, someone to hate someone like, and all that - the first time. So who are these "first"? What did they think what they wanted? The Bible does not answer these questions in detail, it is laconic. But Meir Shalev, carefully reread the history of these "firsts", reveals their innermost feelings, innermost thoughts, underlying motives. He leads us into the depths of wisdom of the biblical text, and we thank him for this exciting, dramatic, full of surprises and discovery journey.
