Description

How can the struggles of a great biblical figure help you to improve your life today?

To help us cope with the burdens of our own "Egypts," author Levi Meier brings to life the struggles, failures, and triumphs that reveal the human side of Moses, a central figure in Jewish, Christian and Islamic traditions. Engaging, empowering and insightful, Moses--The Prince, the Prophet shows how personal struggle and perseverance create a foundation for liberation and change while teaching us about ourselves--our role in life, our struggles and our relationship with God.

More than a biography, Moses--The Prince, the Prophet is a personal guide to growth for each of us. It explores a life intertwined with the story of a people--from the Israelite Exodus from Egypt and the birth of a new nation, to the Divine revelation at Mount Sinai.

Author Levi Meier--chaplain, clinical psychologist, and rabbi--knows how people struggle for healing and meaning in their lives. He brings the drama of these events from biblical history into today to show the very human side of Moses--a person who, like ourselves, experienced self-doubt, fear, suffering, failure and success.

Through examining Moses's experiences and the common threads they share with ours, we are taught lessons for our lives. Drawing on the stories in the Book of Exodus, midrash (finding contemporary meaning from ancient Jewish texts), the teachings of Jewish mystics, modern texts and psychotherapy, Meier offers new ways to create our own path to self-knowledge, self-fulfillment and self-actualization--and face life's difficulties head-on.
