Cambridge Scholars Publishing is pleased to announce the publication of Jews in an Illusion of Paradise: Dust and Ashes Volume Two—Falling out of Place and into History by Norman Simms.

The focus of this volume is on essential themes, images and generic patterns, beginning with a Talmudic legend about four scholars. They, by means of daring mystical interpretations of Scripture, entered a Paradise, representing different means of imaginative reading, perception, memory and application of the law. One of them died, one went mad, another became a heretic and the other came back as a traditional exegete and teacher.
