If you’re a tech entrepreneur, or an aspiring startup founder, and you have one book to read, why should it be the Bible? On this episode, one of Israel’s leading venture capitalists, Michael Eisenberg, makes the case for the Book of Genesis as essential for building the next generation of prosperity, virtue and human flourishing.
Along the way, Rabbi Lamm and Michael Eisenberg talk about:
- Prophets vs. Entrepreneurs
- Whether immortality is good or bad
- Judaism vs. Christianity on whether man is fallen
- Why is Joseph the first entrepreneur?
- Is Egypt good actually?
- Why you need to read the Bible in order, rather than by topic
About Good Faith Effort: The Hebrew Bible is every bit America’s moral founding document as the Constitution is our political founding document. Every week, Rabbi Dr. Ari Lamm speaks with thinkers, writers, artists, and faith leaders to explore how the Bible continues to inform our lives today, from politics to psychology to pop culture, bringing Americans of different traditions and persuasions closer together as so much else threatens to pull us apart.
