Songs of Seven Days


Songs of Seven Days is a reflection on the creation story of Genesis—from the separation of light and darkness to the divine time of rest and Shabbat. While often expressed in traditional poetic forms, the book unfolds as a sort of rabbinic midrash or commentary on each of the seven days of creation set out in the biblical narrative. With a generous dose of humor, Songs of Seven Days takes us on a voyage of discovery, examining creation as we discover it in the fields of astronomy, archeology, architecture, biology, geography, history, physics, psychology, and spirituality. This book invites us to examine our world anew, in a light that Abraham Joshua Heschel called “radical amazement.
