Shabbos Reading

I have begun learning Midrash Rabbah on the Parsha over Shabbos. Though originally I picked it up because I saw it quoted so often by 19th-20th Cen. parshanim, I have found it deep & profound (though it does not need my haskamah chas ve-shalom). It is a Sefer where one can bring the full weight of a liberal arts education (philosophy, literature, hermeneutics, theology, history, psychology, sociology, etc.) to gain a deeper & richer understanding of the text.
