Unbinding the Binding of Isaac is an anthology of three faiths' interpretations of the Genesis 22:1-19 story. The various exegeses of this story have been mined by the Jewish, Islamic, and Christian faiths for a protracted period of time. The "Aqedah," as the binding story is known universally, stimulates the interests and imaginations of theologians, linguists, poets, historians, and artists of various skills and stripes. The Aqedah continues to stimulate inquiry and application to modern situations. Unbinding the Binding of Isaac is at once ancient and modern in its scope, purpose, and relevance to scholarly inquiry regarding this ongoing debate.

Traditional interpertations in both Judaism and Christianity argue that the Akedah presents not only an ethical question but also an ethical reply. But for the intervention of the angel, Abraham would have killed his son. Obedience to God take precedence over morality as humanly conceived. Yet, the angel of YHWH that appears to Abraham is a later addition to the text; thus, in the original narrative Abraham actually disobeys the divine command to slay his son, and sacrifices a ram instead. The first part of the book shows how the "original" version of the narrative did not contain the angelic figure. The second part of the book re-examines various religious interpretations of the text to show that exegetes such as Maimonides and his followers did point out Abraham's disobedience. According to these writers the esoteric layer of the story in fact declares that disobedience to God's command was Abraham's true affirmation of faith. In th ethird part of the book, Boehm re-opens the philosophical debate between Kant and Kierkegaard. Boehm concludes the book by contending that the monotheistic model of faith presented by Abraham was actually a model of disobedience.

The author focuses on a number of pertinent questions that help explain how to create a Jewish ethical and moral society: What really happened at the binding of Isaac? How was the traditional interpretation of this pivotal moment in Jewish history misapplied in Christian theology and Jewish martyrology? Is there even a case for religious murders in Jewish thought and in the growing appeal of Jewish mysticism? What are the underlying premises of Jewry's claim to the Divinely Promised Land? Have the Jewish people forfeited this claim by its failure to pursue an active program of nationalism? How has Judaism developed from its rational, cultural, classical interest in every aspect of God's creation to its current, largely insular, rigid and kabbalistically oriented Orthodoxy, in which even Divine miracles and magic are claimed by certain sages? What has precipitated the gulf within Orthodoxy between the Hasidic-kabbalistic sects and the Modern Orthodox? These, and other modern-day questions, including the proper relationship between religion and the State, are analyzed and fully discussed in this groundbreaking volume.

obligations and expectations. She convincingly examines the many different levels at which the contract operates within Singaporean families and offers striking examples of the meaningful ways in which intergenerational support and transactions are performed, resisted, and renegotiated. Her rich material, drawn from ethnographic fieldwork among middle-class Chinese, provides insights into the complex interplay of fragmenting and integrating forces." "The Binding Tie makes a critical contribution to the study of intergenerational relations in modern, rapidly changing societies and conveys a vivid and nuanced picture of the challenges Singaporean families face in today's hypermodern world. It will be of interest to researchers and students in a range of fields, including anthropology, sociology, Asian studies, demography, development studies, and family studies." --Book Jacket.
