Author Shares Untold Story of Narrative of Sodom

A Lima-based author has released a book containing insight and knowledge the public was previously unaware of regarding the narrative of Sodom. "Sodom's Threshold: The Desire for the Unthinkable," by Isaac Rosler, is a deconstructive telling of the judgment of the Sodomites and an analysis that puts their exceedingly grievous desire that religion both usurps and incorporates to its principles in motion.

In 'Threshold,' Rosler orbits around a quiet surplus, takes what history has told us about Sodom and opens up the biblical text to a new experience of thinking that welcomes the other, the strange and the uncanny. He delves into the "very grievous sin" of the Sodomites and concludes the exorbitant sin of Sodom and Gomorrah was a desire to explore the unknown.

Rosler explains the passion and energy in the Bible that would unfold religion as we know it, and, from there, became inspired to share his findings on what remains unknown, repressed and without a name in the story of Sodom.

Rosler encourages readers to think beyond what they've been told, and to realize there is more to the story than what history and religion has explained. "I want to explain that the surplus in Sodom remains without religion, without God, without nation and without belonging to any particular sex or gender," the author said. "To prove that what religion attempts to eliminate or usurp is nothing that one or any religion can have or give."

A compelling telling of a history story told from a different point of view, "Sodom's Threshold" will grasp the reader's attention from start to finish.
