Alternatives is a compilation of supplemental readings created by Mr. Leon to add meaning to the Jewish Conservative prayer service or to rituals such as the dedication of a new home, a Brit, or a memorial service. The readings reflect a modern interpretation of traditional liturgy in an attempt to reach those who find ancient formulations unsatisfying. For too long the thinking Jew has been required to deal with a theology rooted in a 5000 year old concept of an all powerful God of justice, who sees all and knows all. This does not resonate with the cumulative intelligence of the centuries. The included readings, while personal to the author, have received broad acceptance from the members of his own congregation. They are offered here in the hope that they can reawaken attachment to a tradition which has in certain respects become sterile and repetitive. It is also the author's hope that they will give insight to non Jews as to the breadth and reach of an ancient philosophy which became the foundationstone for western civilization.

A translated text is laced with interpretive assumptions. By focusing on the Septuagint, J. Ross Wagner highlights the creative theology hidden in translation. His model couples patient investigation of the act of translation with careful attention to the translated texts' rhetorical features. Wagner focuses upon Isaiah's opening vision, clarifying its language, elucidating its character, and contextualizing its message. Reading the Sealed Book demonstrates how such translations serve as distinctive contributions to theology and reveal the contours of Jewish identity in the Hellenistic diaspora.
