The biblical author of Genesis wrote in great cosmic images. The dramatic figures of Adam, Noah, Abraham, Jacob and Joseph pass before our eyes, each in turn revealing hidden mystery kwledge. Emil Bock's gift is to interpret these majestic events for our modern-day understanding, without diminishing them. He brings his wide reading of the occult and mythological traditions, as well as the spiritual investigations of Rudolf Steiner, to bear on the texts, deepening our appreciation of Genesis as an outstanding work of art, relevant to the world of today.
Emil Bock (1895-1959) was one of the founders of the Christian Community in 1922, and led the movement from 1938 until his death.
