''Addressing the perceived gap between academia and tradition, Rabbi Etshalom successfully presents an argument for integrating discoveries from the disciplined worlds of archaeology, philology, anthropology and literary analysis into the passionate world of religious study of the Bible. The methodology he teaches in this volume is representative of the latest and best of the revival of serious Tanakh study -- and gives us much more to anticipate in the future.'' --Dr. Yoel Elitzur, Hebrew University
''In the second volume of Between the Lines of the Bible, Rabbi Yitzchak Etshalom examines the sacred stories of Shemot through his nuanced understanding of the Torah's timeless teachings, and brings its insights to the world. As one of the Jewish community's most respected and gifted educators, Rabbi Etshalom brings his vast experience inside and outside the classroom to life through his words and wisdom.'' --Richard M. Joel, President and Bravmann Family University Professor, Yeshiva University
