I just published a new Biblical Art/Midrash book entitled "The Color of
Conquest: Visualizing the Bible in a new light".
The book is a unified visual-literary interpretative commentary on sections of
the Hebrew Bible which include the Books of Joshua and Judges, and significant
portions of Samuel 1 and 2. By utilizing a synthesis of linguistic-artistic
midrash this book uniquely interprets all the colorful, usually powerful, and
always complex leaders of ancient Israel during this epoch including Joshua,
Othniel, Ehud, Shamgar, Deborah, Gideon, Abimelech, Tola, Yair, Jephtha, Ibzan,
Elon, Abdon, Samson, Eli and Samuel. Fragments of their original biblical
stories are preserved while new stories are simultaneously created, which
provide novel understandings of the Bible and insights into the genesis of
Judaic and biblical thought. In addition Kabbalistic and/or mystical visual
symbolism is incorporated.
The book is published by Biblical Art Press.
It is available for purchase through Amazon in paperback and kindle.
