The fundamental book of Eliezer Schweid is a modern interpretation of "The Bible" as narrative and law that can reopen the dialogue of contemporary Jews with "The Bible," from which a dynamic Jewish culture can continue to draw its inspiration. The approach draws at the same time from the philosophical modernism of Hermann Cohen, the dialogical philosophy of Buber, the religious phenomenology of Heschel, and the insights of contemporary Biblical scholars, including literary analysts of "The Bible." Schweid helps us to appreciate the broader message of the narrative of creation and settlement of the land in its ecumenical and planetary dimensions. The world is God's creation whose resources are to be deployed as necessary for the sustenance and needs - fulfilment of all people and all creatures equally - a message very much relevant to the ecological crisis facing us all at the present time.
