Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Abraham Joshua Heschel was one of the most revered religious leaders of the 20th century, and God in Search of Man and its companion volume, Man Is Not Alone, two of his most important books, are classics of modern Jewish theology. God in Search of Man combines scholarship with lucidity, reverence, and compassion as Dr. Heschel discusses not man's search for God but God's for man--the notion of a Chosen People, an idea which, he writes, "signifies not a quality inherent in the people but a relationship between the people and God." It is an extraordinary description of the nature of Biblical thought, and how that thought becomes faith.

Synopsis:

Abraham Joshua Heschel was one of the most revered religious leaders of this century, and God in Search of Man and its companion volume, Man Is Not Alone, are two of his most important books and classics of modern Jewish theology. In God in Search of Man, Heschel discusses in rich and lucid prose the nature of biblical thought, how that thought becomes faith, and how faith draws man to God. His words have inspired readers from every tradition since the book was first published almost fifty years ago.

"God in Search of Man: A Philosophy of Judaism" is one of Rabbi Abraham J. Heschel's masterpieces. Dr. Heschel's almost poetic prose makes this a philosophy book that laymen can understand and enjoy. He was a social activist and by far the most charasmatic teacher at the Jewish Theological Seminary Of America.
