This latest book by Rabbi Sonsino, co-author of Finding God, takes up where that book leaves off. The Many Faces of God deals with contemporary Jewish images of God.
Included in The Many Faces of God are the writings and ideas of such thinkers as Martin Buber, Mordecai Kaplan, Emil Facheknheim, Eugene Borowitz, Zalman Schacter-Shalomi, Harold Kushner, Richard Levy, Judith Plaskow, and others.
Each chapter of this volume begins with detailed biographical information about the author, as well as a brief overview of his or her approach, followed by a selection of texts that represent that thinker's original ideas on the subject of God.
Finding God, by way of essays on significant Jewish thinkers, attempts to answer the questions looming above us all: What is God? Is there more than one God? How can we know God? What does God "want" from us? How does God relate to me? This latest edition of Finding God includes three new essays on the distinct theology of Abraham Joshua Heschel, Emil Fackenheim, Harold Schulweis, Judith Plaskow, Lawrence Kushner, Alvin Reines, and other modern thinkers. These three new pieces are coupled with the "God concepts" belonging to biblical figures, the rabbis of centuries ago, and medieval philosophers. By book's end readers no doubt discover that no single interpretation accurately conceptualizes the Jewish God.
