This essential introduction to Judaism's notions of spirit as they relate to God is designed to inform both Jews and Christians who are studying what it means when we say that God is spirit.

Exploring the Hebrew Bible, Midrash, and other rabbinic writings, Rabbi Timoner uncovers surprising insights about how God as spirit influences Jewish ideas of creation, revelation, and redemption. Written with an accessible and engaging voice, full of stories and relevant teachings, Breath of Life speaks to lay readers and scholars alike, as it pursues a new perspective on Judaism's sacred texts. This book promises Christian readers meaningful insights on their own notions of the Holy Spirit while giving Jewish readers a new look at their own tradition of God as spirit.

"In easy but deceptively profound language, Rachel Timoner deftly savors the essential unknowability of God, the ubiquity of Torah and the mystery of redemption. She's given us an immensely literate and serious, contemporary Jewish theology. Breath of Life is a spiritual tour de force." -Rabbi Lawrence Kushner, Scholar in residence at Congregation Emanu-El of San Francisco, and author of many books including Kabbalah: A Love Story

"Any reader keen to cultivate a robust spirituality should read this little book. Jews and Christians may discover here something to talk about—scriptures we share and a quality of God we have in common." -John R. (Jack) Levison, author of Filled with the Spirit; Professor of New Testament, Seattle Pacific University
