I've enjoyed your last two comments Trent. At a recent training seminar, I made some new Israeli friends - and enjoyed a long night of discussion, over a (kosher) meal, hearing a Jewish perspective on Christian interpretation techniques of Hebrew texts - fascinating. I'm not sure if my suggestions of Jewish voices are orthodox or not, but the two writers Jonathan Safran Foer and Nathan Englander are, for me, some of the most inventive and emotional writers currently - demonstrating beautifully the skill of telling the story from the middle, making the factual truth of the story subservient to the fabling truth that is more meaningful - I'd love to hear their theology of the Jewish story... but like I I said, I'm not sure if that's what you're looking for. As always, many thanks for the weekly wonder,Beir Bua.
