Esau bursts into history as the Heroic Hunter, the Hero of the Hunt in the Bible (Genesis ). At times he is not much different from the beasts he chases after. He astounds by the extremes and inconsistencies of his character. Esau (Edom) was the twin-brother of Jacob (Israel). Now it came about, as soon as Isaac had finished blessing Jacob, and Jacob had hardly gone out from the presence of Isaac his father, that Esau his brother came in from his hunting. Gen. (NASB) In this blessing, Isaac promises that many nations of the world, including the descendants of his brother Esau will serve Jacob’s descendants.

The character of Esau, as it is brought before us in Scripture, partakes largely of this element. He was if anything an impulsive man. He had none of those faults which attach themselves to timid and more thoughtful characters, the tendency to equivocate, and compass an end by somewhat doubtful bargain, and finesse, and sail close to. Esau's relations with *Jacob were a favored theme for many homilies and aggadot. Generally the aggadah follows the biblical account, and so do the pseudepigraphic works of the Second Temple period (particularly the Book of *Jubilees and the *Testament of the Twelve Patriarchs), but they aim at describing Esau as completely wicked. However.

The boys grew up, and Esau became a skillful hunter, a man of the open country, while Jacob was a quiet man, staying among the tents. Isaac, who had a taste for wild game, loved Esau, but Rebekah loved Jacob. (Genesis ). Hebrews states, "By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau concerning things to come." We know with certainty that Esau was reprobate. God already told Rebekah before the twins were born that "the elder [i.e., Esau] shall serve the younger [i.e., Jacob]" (Gen. ).

The book is no doubt informative, but the author does tend to let bias get in the way of his research and writing.

This book served its purpose for me in that it does call out Esau for who he is and confirms what the scriptures say about who he is, where he is and who those people are from his lineage/5(36).

I found this book darker and more difficult than Blue Mountain; perhaps it is best labelled "advanced Israeli fiction," whereas Blue Mountain is more accessible to the casual reader.

Both books are greatly enhanced by familiarity with their settings and history, but Esau seems to actually demand it/5(4).
