Editorial Reviews

Review

An enormous, imaginative work. I think I would call it a modern midrash. And as you know, midrash can be both stimulating and far-out. --The Late Rabbi Jacob Milgrom, Biblical Scholar U. C. Berkeley Professor Emeritus of Near Eastern Studies

Roger Isaacs has written a book that is sure to arouse controversy ... but the arguments that comprise the bulk of the book have 40 years of scholarly research backing them. --Robert Wolf, Author and Executive Editor, Free River Press

TALKING WITH GOD is a powerful, overwhelming work of scholarship and dedication. Thank you not only for the book, but also for the enormous contribution you made to better understand the Bible and the Jewish tradition. We were deeply impressed further by your father's message in his own handwriting, a message which endures permanently. --Newt Minow


About the Author

Roger D. Isaacs is an independent researcher, specializing in Hebrew Bible studies. His books on the subject include the following:

The Golden Ark: A Pictorial History (Publishing Institute)
A general interest story of one of the Bible's most important artifacts--the Ark of The Testimony

Talking With God: The Radioactive Ark Of The Testimony. An Etymological Study (Publishing Institute)
A 50-year study, comparing original, biblical Hebrew terms with related words from neighboring ancient languages, unearthing wide variation from traditional translations

Puzzling Biblical Laws (Block)
A monograph that Isaacs co-authored with his father, the noted hematologist and biblical scholar Dr. Raphael Isaacs, identifying several botched translations of biblical laws and grounding Isaacs' subsequent research

Isaacs' primary research site was the archives of the Oriental Institute at the University of Chicago, where he is a member of the Visiting Committee. He also conducted research at the Spertus Institute for Jewish Studies, as well as digs, museums, and libraries in many countries, including Syria, Jordan, Turkey, Egypt, Israel, and England. Isaacs worked on the linguistics aspect of the research, particularly comparisons with the Ugaritic, Assyrian, and Babylonian, with a doctoral candidate.
