Rabbi Chaim Navon teaches Jewish Thought and Talmud at Yeshivat Har Etzion, Herzog College, Migdal Oz, and Midreshet Lindenbaum, in addition to serving as rabbi of Kehillat Ha-Shimshoni in Modiin. He has written three books in Hebrew, addressing the philosophy of Halakha, parashat ha-shavu a, and the thought of Rabbi Soloveitchik. This book uses the book of Genesis as a jumping-off point for exploring the diversity of traditional Jewish thought on a wide variety of issues. If you ever thought that there was only one "Jewish position" (or even one "Orthodox Jewish position") on any issue, you won't after reading this book. A few examples: For example, one might think that traditional Jews all believe in Divine Providence so consistently that every misfortune is punishment for something or reward for something.

Chaim Navon, a community rabbi in Modi'in writes: Many religious people think that if the Torah forbade homosexual relationships, it is necessarily because homosexuality is a despicable and unnatural perversion. Yet our faith in the Creator requires us to recognize that we cannot grasp the depth of his considerations. Finally, it appears that R. Navon may well merit an article. So he's a notable figure and an authority, as long as he's correctly placed. That said, other more well-known authorities whose views have been published in scholarly religious journals as distinct from newspaper articles might be better sources.
