Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Much of this book is not generally applicable today -- it's of interest, but some of it for historical references as signs along the path we've travelled in the past 50 years... some of it only reflective of the baby-boomer experience. Not that our kids couldn't benefit from understanding how we got where we got.... In reviewing the chevurah that he wrestled with/in for a number of years in the chavurot that led to Jewish Renewal, we get to see some open-hearted attempts to understand the Divine experience in modern terms and to understand what Jews need to deal with in the late 20th C. --a lot of that still applies in the 21st C. More than the positions Reb Arthur comes to, the process of looking is worth learning from.

Format: Paperback
Godwrestling contains many of the ideas that Arthur Waskow will explore in other books, and in greater depth. This makes Godwrestling an excellent introduction to his thinking. For example, he explores his concept of a modern "jubilee" and the notion of messianic redemption in a post-rabbinical setting.

For readers of Waskow's later works, one can see how his ideas were developed in the context of his havurat of post-hippy Jewish spiritual seekers. This book captures the ideas of a time and a place: that with work and a sense of shared community, people can change the world.
