The Bible is spare in its use of dialogue when it comes to the biblical matriarchs Sarah, Rebecca, Rachel and Leah. The written biblical text records at length, and in minute detail, the religious and national history of the Jewish people. Yet it only affords us a mere glimpse of the private and intimate lives of these strong and prophetic women. On the surface, these women--the biblical matriarchs--lived difficult and flawed lives. They endured childlessness, abduction, wearisome marriages, envy of the "other woman," and difficult children. We are left wondering what they thought and how they felt, as they lived their personal lives and built a nation.

This book, for the first time ever, answers these questions by drawing extensively upon classical biblical commentaries and Talmudic and Rabbinic writings which reveal the underlying emotions of the matriarchs. The reader enters the world of the matriarchs, experiencing the agony of infertility, the ecstasy of passionate love, and the pain of being unloved. Their thoughts, feelings, words and actions are fleshed out, and the women emerge not as one-dimensional figures, but as complex women possessing an array of universal passions. At the same time, these women remain grounded in Godliness, building the "House of Israel" as partners with the patriarchs.

The Passions of the Matriarchs is a riveting and readable book that tells the story behind the passions that ruled the lives of these laudable women.

The text of the book of Genesis often tells us just enough to raise lots of questions about what is happening in the "white space" between the lines. These questions have been answered in various ways hrough the centuries by astute commentators who have read the text closely and made the most of the clues it contains.

This book lays out the rich Jewish traditions surrounding the matriarchs of Genesis---Sarah, Rebekah, Leah, and Rachel---in loving detail. It makes a wonderful addition to studies of Genesis. The authors have consulted a wide range of sources, from the Talmud and Genesis Rabbah to medieval and modern commentators. The book closes with a helpful glossary identifying who and what these different sources are.

Among the questions discussed are: (1) How did Sarah find out that Isaac was to be offered as a sacrifice, and how did she react? (2) What were the motivations of all the people involved in the complex story of how a bride was found for Isaac? (3) How did Rebekah's handmaid happen to be with Jacob and his family when she died? (4) Why did Rachel steal her father's household idols? (5) Why was Rachel buried on the road to Bethlehem rather than at Machpela? (6) What were the background and nature of Reuben's transgression with Bilhah?
