insightful, illuminating and contemporary

I was brought up as a Roman Catholic with biblical teachings emphasizing the New Testament and very little of the Old Testament. Wrestling w/Angels re-introduced me to the wise ancient stories of Genesis, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Not only is this book a great read, it is full of insights illuminating conflicts and challenges we continue to face in contemporary life. Whether or not you believe in the historical accuracy of the Bible, the people who are chronicled in its stories are important archetypes whose influence on our collective thought patterns is vast. Wrestling w/Angels is a key guide to understanding the meaning of those archetypes because they show us how we, as individuals and as a world, have developed our "identity, sexuality and personal relationships."

A triumph of the human spirit !

Naomi Rosenblatt leads us on an in-depth and eye opening journey through the Book of Genesis. I found her easy to read style similar to M. Scott Peck, in that she provides concrete examples of how the Book of Genesis relates to modern day life. This should be mandatory reading for all those contemplating a career in the helping professions - including law enforcement recruits. Her coverage of the concept of Hineni, Here am I, is especially poignant for parents and teachers. Regardless of our particular faiths this book can help us all understand the triumph of the human spirit. Ms. Rosenblatt's book is truly a work of art.


Puts everything into prespsective. Shows how the Bible fits into todays contemporary lives. And how everything was thought of and and actually transpired thousands of years ago.

NR brings startling insights to familiar Bible accounts

This is a wonderful book. Rosenblatt connects familiar Bible stories to contemporary life with fresh insight. You can start reading on any page and receive "new" information as well as a spiritual blessing.

Illustrating humanity in its most human moments.

Naomi Rosenblatt writes in clear, easy to understand language that flows with the ease of a novelette, but with the content of an epic. She brings into the reader's focus the very human side of characters, events and circumstances that are all too often put on pedestals and hidden in "glass cages" as icons and statuary. Three cheers and a "thanks" to Mrs. Rosenblatt for helping to make these wonderful Old Testament characters identifiable in terms and means we can all understand.
