Nosson Slifkin

Mysterious Creatures

Unicorns, mermaids, dragons, and phoenixes may feel at home in Hogwarts, but references to these and other mysterious creatures go back much further in history. The Bible, Talmud, and Midrash refer to many such strange creatures. In this beautifully designed and richly illustrated book, Nosson Slifkin, the famed "zoo rabbi" and author of Seasons of Life, Nature's Song, and The Science of Torah, examines a host of mythic and not so mythic creatures from both their Torah descriptions and modern zoological research, giving us a new perspective on the interface between science, myth, and Torah thought.
