Editorial Reviews

Review

"The overall aim of the book, 'to provide a forum through which to introduce Fackenheim's though to a broader audience' (5), is well served by the scope and depth of the essays gathered here, a good many of which were written by former students of Fackenheim for whom their teacher's legacy clearly provides a continuing provocation." Philip G. Ziegler, in Studies in Religion, Vol. 41, No. 3
