Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Man Is Not Alone is a profound, beautifully written examination of the ingredients of piety: how man senses God's presence, explores it, accepts it, and builds life upon it. Abraham Joshua Heschel's philosophy of religion is not a philosophy of doctrine or the interpretation of a dogma. He erects his carefully built structure of thought upon foundations which are universally valid but almost generally ignored. It was Man Is Not Alone which led Reinhold Niebuhr accurately to predict that Heschel would "become a commanding and authoritative voice not only in the Jewish community but in the religious life of America." With its companion volume, God in Search of Man, it is revered as a classic of modern theology.

"Man is Not Alone: A Philosophy of Religion" is a modern day classic of theology, widely read by clergy and students of Conservative, Reconstructionist, and Reform Judaism. Professor of Ethics and Mysticism at the Jewish Theological Seminary, Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel's lyrical prose style and absence of doctrine helped make this book popular.
