Biblical Seductions retells six biblical stories of seduction, desperation, abduction, violence, and of unique human kindness. Illuminated through centuries of bold and sensitive Midrashic insight, these ancient tales of Lot and his Daughters, Dinah and Shechem, Judah and Tamar, David and Batsheva, Amnon and Tamar, and Ruth and Boaz, reemerge for the modern reader as timeless stories of lust, love, and survival.
