Hisinterpretations of well-known--and some lesser known--biblicalstories will appeal both to readers with deeply held religiousbeliefs and those with no belief system. In clear, readable prose,Fuchs presents cogent and understandable explanations of Biblicalmythology and derives crucial lessons from the narratives. Manywill nd meaning and instruction in the teachings of this learnedman and his texts."

From the Author

"What's in It for Me? Finding Ourselves in Biblical Narratives" percolated in my mind for 40 years before its publication in 2014. I am grateful for the AMAZON reviews it has received and that it is available as an audio book that has also been translated into German and Russian.My second book, "ToraHighlights" was published in the fall of 2016. It provides short comments in English and German on each of the weekly Torah readings that I hope will inform and inspire readers of all religious persuasions.

"The work is very approachable and supremely readable." Toni Robinson

At the age of 68, I distilled more than 45 years of study, teaching and writing into my first book! Over the last 40 years as a pulpit rabbi and 18 months as President of the World Union for Progressive Judaism, in which I visited and spoke in more than 65 communities around the world, I have seen a great need for the approach to biblical stories that What's in It for Me? Finding Ourselves in Biblical Narratives presents. I have since written four other books that I believe you will enjoy

I am gratified by the AMAZON reviews I have received to date and hope that you will find great meaning in my books. I am also eager to share their message in person with your congregation, book group, seminar, convention or other type of meeting. Please be in touch at
