Although Kabbalah has primarily been used as a resource to improve the way we live our present lives, the same concept of applying a mystical reading to the biblical text can aid our understanding of what the events of the past are meant to teach us today. Larry S. Milner’s novels use the teaching of Kabbalah to explain three particular issues of primary importance: why Moses had to die before entering the Promised Land; whether Judaism was truly the first monotheistic religion; and the many similarities between the writings of the Old Testament and the ancient Greek civilization, which have stymied historians who have always thought of the two cultures as being isolated from each other. The Legacy of the Burning Bush shows how a group of dissident Hebrews wanted to remain loyal to the teachings of the Patriarchs, rather than modify their faith as demanded by Moses during the Exodus.
