Meeting with Lot’s Wife: Ancient messenger offers a timely message for today’s troubled world.
If you feel disconnected from the past, you’re not alone. Dr. Starr traveled thousands of miles to reconnect with the woman who was transformed into a pillar of salt for looking back. The annihilated cities of Sodom and Gomorrah, according to legend, once stood in the midst of today’s Dead Sea waters. The author asks, “Is Lot’s Wife an alarm intended to awaken us from our slumber thousands of years later? Cast as our silent siren, was she turned into salt to remind us of the lessons of Sodom and Gomorrah – cities of penultimate greed and the vanquishing of spirit?”
“The woman who looked backward suffered a sad and lonely fate,” writes Dr. Starr. “We on the other hand, must look forward in harmony with one another.”
Dr. Starr’s revised version of this fascinating story will be published soon. Please enter your name and email for immediate notification. Confidentiality is guaranteed. We will not contact you for any other purpose or reason.
