The Problematics of Myth

By Neil Gillman

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), January 2002

The author discusses what he means by the problematic term,"myth," and why he uses it in spite of its difficulties. He emphasizes that this point is critical to personal theology; how one understands revelation, for example, determines how one deals with the authority of Torah on all matters of Jewish practice and belief.
