Description: Written in the high art style of prophetic witness, The Scroll of Anatiya reveals a new kind of biblical heroine who is fiercely passionate and sensual. In this first-person, honest, and vulnerable account of an orphaned, passion-driven disciple of Jeremiah--perhaps a prophetess in her own right--Anatiya reveals herself to be a rare window into an incredible world and a beautiful mind. Out of a century of war, wrath, starvation, and exile, Anatiya's epic love poem unleashes a timeless theology of love. In this unique work, the contemporary imagination of Rabbi Zoe Klein meshes seamlessly with the world of Jeremiah in an unforgettable story of passion, poetry, and love. Endorsements: ""Painstakingly researched, melding seamlessly with the biblical/historical record, this fictional work is also powerfully envisioned, written, and realized by a woman writer. Rabbi Zoe Klein has put on the skin and soul of a female prophet/scribe in the time of Jeremiah, bringing a fresh voice into the patriarchal story. How significantly this has enriched me How much I want others to be as astonished as I was "" --Luci Shaw author of The Crime of Living Cautiously and Accompanied by Angels ""With the scriptural erudition of the Rabbi she is, and considerable imaginative gifts, Zoe Klein has cr eated in Anatiya a warm, believable companion to an elder Jeremiah, whose quiet love reunites the aged prophet with the passion of love and faith that called him from youth to God and renders in their story a powerful tale of divine love incarnate. --Sam Portaro author of Brightest & Best: A Companion to Lesser Feasts & Fasts, Crossing the Jordan, and Sheer Christianity. ""Redolent in metaphor and spirit, aching with love both earthly and heavenly, The Scroll of Anatiya offers the reader the imagined journey of a young woman disciple of Jeremiah, a journey of a woman's body and spirit. The text draws deeply from the Hebrew Scriptures, while also bringing to speech the voice of a young woman, whose writing 'resonates off the walls.' I recommend reading the text slowly, allowing yourself to savor the language and the imagery, indeed to savor the premise of the scroll."" --Mary C.
