Daughter of a Voice is a book on I-Thou and I-It encounters in the book of Genesis. Using Martin Buber's philosophy of I-Thou and Jewish Midrash, the author reflects on the biblical personalities as a means of teaching the art of living in relationship with the world, with humanity, and with God. Abraham is a man obsessed with God. Jacob sees the face of God in the face of Esau. Hagar gives God a new name as a result of an encounter. Judah saves a woman from death by declaring "she is more in the right than I."
The reader is invited to see that all encounters, even between humans, are rooted in the eternal Thou. All real living is meeting.
Each of the chapters concludes with questions that challenge the reader to encounter life in all of its tragic and exhilarating moments. There is no impression without expression. While the book is written for all, irrespective of religious affiliation, it will appeal especially to individuals who want to encounter their own life and to teachers and pastors charged with making Scripture known in a life-giving manner.
