Editorial Reviews


"It is indeed rare to hear a voice equally at home in theology and logic, in Judaica, Islamic studies, and western philosophy. Lenn Goodman's ambitious, deeply felt argument bears on the relations between the existence of God and the concept of values in ethics. The main focus is that of Jewish monotheism ('the God of Abraham') and the code of moral conduct established by Mosaic law, the Torah, and certain of the great rabbinic interpretations from Maimonides to the present. But Islamic analogues and the metaphysical-ethical thought of Aristotle and of Kant are prominent and illuminating throughout. This is a treatise at once finely 'old-fashioned' in its didactic gravity and modern in its range of reference. A book to be listened to."--George Steiner, Cambridge University

"Learning is joined to elegance of expression in an argument that follows the way of the mind to the truth by which it is transcended and in which it knows itself. Where the author distances Jewish from Christian thought, the Christian thinker is provoked to think more carefully."-- The Rev. Richard John Neuhaus, President of Religion and Public Life.

"Erudite, instructive, and enormously, wide-ranging, Lenn Goodman's God of Abraham puts monotheism--and especially Biblical theism--in a wider philosophical and cultural context than any book I know. It also expresses a many-faceted worldview of its own, and at the same time develops a distinctive theory of the relation between the notions of the divine and the good."--Robert Audi, University of Nebraska.

"A major contribution to philosophical theology that must be encountered on the playing field of reason. Highly recommended."--First Things

"...any intellectually serious Jew (as well as non-Jews serious about religious thought) who reads God of Abraham will never quite be the same."Midstream
