Short Desription

One of Reform Judaism"s Significant Jewish Books Rabbi Lawrence A. Hoffman is widely recognized as a leader in bringing spiritual innovation
into modern Jewish life and worship. Now, drawing on a lifetime of study, he explores the Jewish way of being in the world—the Jewish relationship to God and to questions of human purpose that lie just below the surface of biblical and rabbinic literature.

"Through seamless excursions into history, law, comparative religion, art, music, literature, psychology, sociology and philosophy, he examines
the Jewish way of "mapping reality" to meet our most important challenge: finding shape in our lives. . . . Hoffman"s lucid and eloquent interpretations
will appeal to Jewish and non-Jewish readers searching to understand Judaism and to "connect the dots" in their own lives."
—Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Hoffman"s analysis of Jewish spiritual wisdom and its relevance to today"s world is both lucid and perceptive."
—George Cohen, Booklist

Rabbi Lawrence A. Hoffman is professor of liturgy at Hebrew Union College–Jewish Institute of Religion. Author of Israel: A Spiritual Travel Guide and many other books, he lectures widely to Jewish and Christian audiences. He
lives in Rye, New York.

"Hoffman''s enterprise is worthy of its task...and I expect his book will attain the status of a classic, as much read and responded to as it is praised and celebrated. What Abraham J. Heschel in his day sought to do...is what Hoffman has accomplished, in all humanity and art, for the generation of those who these days seek God."
--Jacob Neusner, Jewish Post and Opinion
