Synopsis

This book is a study in the law that exists before the beginnings of law. It looks at one foundational moment, the giving of the Torah at Mount Sinai. Drawing upon nearly two thousand years of Hebrew commentary, often scattered and fragmentary, The Law Before the Law seeks to reconstruct imaginative understandings of how Hebrew commentators visualized what existed prior to receiving the commandments.
