Defying more than 3,000 years of Torah tradition and belief, Greenberg, an Orthodox rabbi who publicized his homosexuality in 1999, embarks on a thorough, if questionable, trek to reevaluate the overt biblical prohibition of male-male relations. For millennia, two bibical verses have been understood to condemn sex between men as an act so abominable that it is punishable by death. Orthodox Jews, believing the scripture to be the word of God, have rejected homosexuality. »Wrestling with God and Men« is the product of Rabbi Greenberg's ten-year struggle to reconcile his two warring identities. Greenberg challenges long held assumptions of scriptural interpretation and religious identity as he marks a path that is both responsible to human realities and deeply committed to God and Torah. Employing traditional rabbinic resources, Greenberg presents readers with surprising bibical interpretations of the creation story, the love of David and Jonathan, the destruction of Sodom, and the condemning verse of Leviticus.
