I want to finish writing my book on moral psychology in Genesis. And I want to continue writing my weekly blog posts. But I have discovered I cannot do both at once.
So this fall, while the Jewish cycle of Torah readings is going through the book of Genesis, I will work on my own book. I have already rewritten my essays and Torah monologues to date that deal with how Genesis presents moral conundrums to its characters. Now I need to write new work to complete the jigsaw puzzle.
During the next eleven weeks, I will send you an update on my progress, and a link to one of my earlier blog posts on the Torah portion of the week–one that will not appear in the book.
Also at anytime, you can click on “Categories” in the sidebar to the right of any of my posts, scroll down, click on the name of a Torah portion, and click on any of my earlier posts that you would like to read.
I plan to be back with a new blog post in January, when we begin studying the book of Exodus again. By then I hope my book is finished!
May the next eleven weeks be creative and fulfilling for all of us.
Here is a link to one of my essays on the first two Torah portions of Genesis, Bereishit and Noach: Noach: Winds of Change.
