Anyone going through a bad patch should read this wonderful book.
Green defines himself as a searcher and rather than presenting hard doctrine seems to want to suggest his conception of Jewish thought, including his Halachic ideas. He starts by reading a story- parable of Rabbi Nachman and the flavor of the paradoxical and mystical, the longing questing soul is immediately stamped upon the work. I liked very much his way of talking honestly about modern scientific developments and his effort to read the process of overall development in terms of God's Immanence. I found his way of talking about the Shema as a call to the people of Israel to hear , and his subsequent exposition of the meaning of this, illuminating. I cannot say I understood fully Green's thought but at many points I found it insightful and inspiring. His love of the Jewish people and the Jewish religious tradition pervade the work, as does his clear love of humanity.
This is a work which I will go back to and reread , looking to focus more closely on those ideas which I hopefully will make a part of my own way of seeing and being in the world.
