Hidden Truths from Eden: Esoteric Interpretations of Genesis 1-3 (Co-editor; Atlanta, GA: SBL, 2014)

Since the sixteenth century CE, the field of biblical studies has focused on the literal meaning of texts. This collection seeks to rectify this oversight by integrating the study of esoteric readings into academic discourse. Case studies focusing on the first three chapters of Genesis cover different periods and methods from early Christian discourse through zoharic, kabbalistic and alchemical literature to modern and post-postmodern approaches.
  • Discussions, comparisons, and analyses of esoteric appropriations of Genesis 1–3
  • Essays on creation myths, gender, fate and free will, the concepts of knowledge, wisdom, and gnosis
  • Responses to papers that provide a range of view points
