By Michael Smith,Rami Shapiro,Aaron Herschel Shapiro

Here’s the tale: a reverend and a rabbi begin a web publication. In 2008, Baptist minister Michael Smith and Jewish rabbi Rami M. Shapiro all started a digital dialog through blogspot.com. known as “Mount and Mountain,” the weblog recorded a long-running discussion among Mike and Rami during which the pair interpreted, argued approximately, and interrogated key texts drawn from the canons in their respective religions: the 10 Commandments from the Torah, the Sermon at the Mount from the Gospel of St. Matthew, and now, of their most up-to-date collaboration, the tales of Genesis.

Editor Aaron Herschel Shapiro describes storytelling as an “infinite video game” simply because tales “must be retold—not simply repeated, yet reinvented, reimagined, and reexperienced” to stay important on this planet. Mike and Rami proceed their prior conversations, exploring the areas the place their traditions intersect and diverge and hearing one another as they reply to the tales of production, of Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel, Noah, Jacob, and Joseph. Mike and Rami swap the tales via interpretation as they themselves are replaced via tale and interpretation. And as we learn with them, we too reply and interpret and change.
