The brilliant wordplay and use of metaphors is a highlight of this collection. The Rabbi and the Priest had me grinning as well as reaching for the glossary of Hebrew terms. I loved the playful short story Rock, Paper, Scissors - although I will never think of the game in the same way again!
One of the themes is God working in mysterious and even puzzling ways, showing up in unexpected and unfamiliar guises. He writes of his spiritual and genealogical heritage, with tales bearing tribute to his forebears and descendants alike. Another one of these parables encouraged me, and offers a unique look at an old dilemma. Highly recommended.
