Midrash is a Hebrew word meaning to search out.

This ancient, Jewish method for interpreting the Bible searches not for what is familiar but for what is unfamiliar, not for whats clear but for whats unclear, and then wrestles with the text, passionately, playfully, and reverently. Midrash views the Bible as one side of a conversation, started by God, containing an implicit invitation to keep the conversation going.

Kunst invites the reader to explore Midrash for the first time through a conversation, at times humorous, reflective and poetic, offering practical suggestions for personal Midrash-making along the way.To listen to an excerpt from The Burning Word, click here.Click Here to listen to an interview with Judith Kunst
