Book Cover

“He had a vision in a dream. A ladder was standing on the ground, its top reaching up towards heaven as Divine angels were going up and down on it.” (Genesis 28:12)

The cover image is based upon a serigraph in the collection of the Israel Museum that was created in Jerusalem by the book’s author, artist Mel Alexenberg.  It shows two digitized Rembrandt angels ascending from a NASA satellite image of the Land of Israel while emerging from a smartphone.  It illustrates the biblical commentary that the angels in Jacob’s dream go up from the Land of Israel and come down to earth throughout the world.  A smartphone has the power to make this vision a reality.

The angels carry a message to each of the 70 biblical nations populated by the descendants of Noah that God “separated into their lands, every one according to his language, according to their families, into their nations” (Genesis 10: 5).  They convey God’s message that the nations of the world are not meant to speak one language as in the disastrous Tower of Babel episode.  Each nation has its unique and distinct voice to contribute to the grand planetary choir singing God’s praise.
