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
From the early 1950s until 1965, Roger D. Isaacs worked with his father, the noted hematologist and biblical scholar Dr. Raphael Isaacs, on the theory that is now explored in Talking With God. This collaboration culminated in a monograph on the subject entitled Puzzling Biblical Laws (Bloch, 1965). After Dr. Isaacs death in 1965, Roger Isaacs launched into independent research on the subject, which became the foundation of this book.
Mr. Isaacs attended the University of Chicago and the University of Wisconsin (Madison). His education was interrupted by World War II. During the war, he served with the 87th Infantry division in France and Germany where he received the Purple Heart. After the war, Isaacs continued his education at Bard College and graduated with a degree in Language and Literature.
From 1948 to 1992, Isaacs was an executive with The Public Relations Board, an international public relations agency, where he served as Chairman and president until he sold the company to the communications conglomerate Omnicom. Isaacs has two children and four grandchildren and lives in Glencoe, Illinois, with his wife, Joyce.
In addition to his father, Mr. Isaacs comes from a long line of biblical scholars. His great grandfather was the religious leader Schachne Isaacs, who established the leading orthodox synagogue in Cincinnati known as Reb Schachne s Schule in the 1800s.

before they are recognized, precisely because they depart so far from the
conventional wisdom. I am amazed by the range of ancient languages called on for parallels to Biblical Hebrew terms. I found especially compelling the extensive discussion of radioactivity in connection with the cloud and the ark as receptor as well as the explanation in this connection of the urim and tumim and the ephod. The whole priestly cult as a defensive operation is a new and challenging idea.
