Yitzhak Berger advances a distinctive and markedly original
interpretation of the biblical book of Jonah that resolves many of
the ambiguities in the text. Berger contends that the Jonah text
pulls from many inner-biblical connections, especially ones
relating to the Garden of Eden. These connections provide a
foundation for Berger's reading of the story, which attributes
multiple layers of meaning to this carefully crafted biblical book.
Focusing on Jonah's futile quest and his profoundly troubled
response to God's view of the sins of humanity, Berger shows how
the book paints Jonah as a pacifist no less than as a moralist.
