Reviews

"Rabbi Mark Sameth takes us on a thrilling journey shrouded in mystery into the very heart of faith. The Name is traditional and revolutionary, historical and mythical, rational and mystical. I couldn't put it down. This book is a blessing you will want to share with your friends, a work that will open you up to new and healing visions of God, of self, of humanity, and of our world." --Naomi Levy, author of Einstein and the Rabbi

"Sameth reveals a secret hidden within the very Name of God. He weaves history, Bible, theology, Kabbalah, linguistics into a teaching about the nature of sexuality and the Holy One of Being. Indeed, this may just be the most interesting thing written about God since the Jews figured out there was only One." --Lawrence Kushner, author of Kabbalah: A Love Story

"This is the freshest thinking that I have come across in nearly forty years as a rabbi. This insight into our understanding of the theological worldview of the rabbis is revolutionary. It has the potential to change our entire understanding of the past." --Kerry Olitzky, co-author of The Book of Job: A Modern Translation and Commentary
