The story of Moses and the Exodus from Egypt has been a central story of Western culture for three millennia. Rabbi Burton L. Visotzky, one of America's premiere proponents of Bible narrative, tells these stories so that they are accessible and urgent to yet another generation. Just as he brought Genesis to millions of viewers through public television and his best-selling book The Genesis of Ethics, Visotzky now brings the Exodus narrative to life with humor and style, combining the ancient commentaries of the rabbis with his own unorthodox yet trenchant observations. As the Exodus story proceeds from slavery to freedom, from despair to hope, the reader is taken on a journey of moral development and modern community building--a powerful passage toward redemption.
The Road to Redemption shows how communities are formed, what constitutes leadership, how a leader faces the resistance of those he or she leads, and how a people can come to find covenant with God. This book will delight readers of all religions and walks of life. It can be read by individuals curled up in an easy chair, by families around the table, by reading groups, Bible classes, or in university settings. The Road to Redemption is a deeply enjoyable, educational journey and a spiritual guide for all who travel the road with its wise and gentle guidance.
