In this work, Michael Kaiser presents an original and creative interpretation of the Akeidah, the haunting saga of faith which has intrigued the world for millennia. Based on a close reading of the Biblical text in conjunction with an impressive array of commentators, both ancient and modern, the author reveals how the drama of the Akeidah lies in the unresolved tension inherent in the creation of the world, and how the characters in this drama are uniquely suited to fulfill their divine mission. The book concludes with the text and analysis of a twelfth century piyut which is the focal point of the Yamim Noraim services in many Sephardic congregations but virtually unknown in Ashkenazic circles.
