Ladder of Jacob by James L. Kugel Ladder of Jacob, Paperback (March 2009)

Rife with incest, rape, and murder, the biblical story of Jacob and his children must have troubled ancient readers. This title traces the steps of ancient biblical interpreters as they struggled with such problems. It reveals how they often fixed on a little detail in the Bible's wording to 'deduce' something not openly stated in the narrative.
