Throughout decades spent examining the biblical text and the mysteries of its language, Annick de Souzenelle has formed a captivating and original reading of the prophetic tradition, which here reaches its full potential. Based on a profound intuition of original Christian spirituality, and the fundamental Hebrew nature of its holy literature, she rids this universal heritage of any semblance of moralising to restore its full vitality. She has used the subject matter of previous works (Alliance of fire, Job on the path of enlightenment), to distil the essence of the message which she draws from timeless themes: the exile of God, freedom, knowledge, desire, evil and death, rebirth. All subjects which all lie at the heart of any authentic spiritual knowledge. The Torah is the embrace of God, she proclaims: through the loving attention paid the richness of the Hebrew word, new life is breathed into it.
