Illuminating Counsel: How the Least Holy Books of the Hebrew Bible Explore Life’s Most Important Issues is a study of eleven books of the Hebrew Bible, known collectively as the Ketuvim, or “Writings.” Judaism considers these books to be less holy than the other books of the Hebrew Bible. Most people don’t even know the Jewish order of the books of the Hebrew Bible is different than the Christian order. Many people seem to think the Hebrew Bible is antiquated and has little relevance to modern life. Even Christians, who value the Hebrew Bible as “Holy Scripture,” tend to favor the New Testament. Herein it is argued that the least holy books of the Hebrew Bible are life-changing pieces of literature. Their poetry and prose cover virtually every emotion, every behavior, and every aspect of the human condition. They are as relevant to the committed nonreligious as they are to the religious. So, if you want to plunge the depths of literary sublimity; if you want to explore what it means to be human, to struggle with your mortality, to go through death’s dark valley and come out on the other side, to confront your pain and in so doing find healing, then I invite you to read on and discover how the Hebrew Bible illuminates counsel.
