The biblical narrative of Noah is sparse, occupying only a few pages in the book of Genesis. Yet, it is one of the most perplexing and unexplained chapters of biblical history.

It is a world destroyed because of a people descended into irredeemable violence. The violence that began with Cain and Abel has so consumed the Earth that God chooses to destroy his creation rather than repair it.

A survivor of the Holocaust, in which he lost most of his family, Wiesel is a seminal chronicler of that event and its meaning. Wiesel shares some of his thoughts on modern-day Israel and Germany, his understanding of God, and his practice of prayer after the Holocaust.

Elie Wiesel dispels the misconception that he forever lost his faith in God after the war. Language becomes holy through prayer.
