Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Gillman, a National Jewish Book Award winner, explores the six basic themes of Judaism: How can we know anything about God? What can Judaism teach us about God? What is the source of authority for what we believe and how we live? What is Torah and why is it so sacred? What, if at all, is God’s role in human suffering? What happens to us after we die? Gillman submits that his identification with the thinking of Mordecai Kaplan and Paul Tillich represented his gradual shift toward religious naturalism. His book is one of the most enlightening studies of a complex subject. --George Cohen

A wonderful distillation of Gillman's thinking over the two decades since 'Sacred Fragments' was published. His honesty, rigor and authenticity are compelling. For anyone struggling with the tensions inherent in a liberal position, this is a must-read.

Rabbi Gillman explores a range of topics in Jewish theology. A good follow up for those who have already read his classic "Sacred Fragments: Recovering Theology for the Modern Jew".

6 of 8 people found the following review helpful By PaulSchwartz7285 on January 25, 2009
Format: Hardcover
This book is dense, in the same way that Abraham Joshua Heschel's writing is dense. I found that I had to stop reading between section breaks to contemplate the writing. For me, that's a good thing, as it indicates a book that has challenged or enlightened me.

If you identify as a Conservative Jew I would consider this required reading. Gillman has the ability to make you think, regardless of whether you agree with his positions.
