Only complete recognition of the fundamentally Hebrew character of the Bible can free it from the moralism and narrow-minded perspective of prior interpretations. Among the principles governing the Hebrew language, the symbolic value attributed by the Jewish tradition to letters of the alphabet is one of the essential ingredients of a spiritual penetration of the scriptures. Each letter possesses its own signifying energy, and its presence in a name, word or holy text is never random. Annick de Souzenelle here introduces us to the fascinating world of Hebrew letters in light of his extraordinary scholarship and Christian faith, and enables us to discover, in the Bible and ourselves, rich resources which we never even suspected we had. Under his gaze, the letter becomes life’s pathway, a fruitful means of researching inner development.
