Cohen, N. J. (1998). Voices from Genesis: Guiding Us Through the Stages of Life. Woodstock, VT, Jewish Lights Publishing.

Cohen applies the developmental theory of Erik Erikson to interpretation of the patriarchal narratives, moving from Adam and Eve as illustrations of Infancy, to Cain and Abel, early childhood, Noah, Play age, etc. the older Jacob,– old age. The author is Provost of Hebrew Union College, Jewish Institute of Religion and Professor of Midrash. He participated in Bill Moyers’ GENESIS; A LIVING CONVERSATION.
