Présentation de l'éditeur
Uncovering the tracks of the Divine, she probes deeply into God’s statements and silences, revealing a gripping saga of oscillating progressions and regressions, in such stories as:
- The Garden of Eden and the Curiosity Tree
- The magic chest, surmounted by two golden statues of angels, and a seat for God to sit on
- Esau as overlooked First Saint in the Bible
Weaving her magical way through back roads and undiscovered trails in the Good Book, Miles also champions those down-and-out creatures who have normally lived only on the margins of our consciousness:
- Hagar and her young son Ishmael, cast out from Abraham’s tent onto the vast nothingness of the barren desert
- That Much-Maligned Caller-Up-of-the-Dead, the Witch of Endor
- King David’s long-suffering wife Michal--who is “married to the mob"
Traversing biblical landscapes and seeking out the shifting lairs of the divine, Miles opens up a world with stubbornness, tragedy, and even humor. Her sum-up: “God needs us as much as we need Him; I think God is looking for a new kind of covenant with us.”
After diving into these fresh pages, you will never read the Bible with quite the same eyes again.
