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.
Jewish Journeys Through Diagnosis, Treatment, and Recovery
When the diagnosis of illness shatters the veneer of our normal, comfortable, predictable course of life, we are embittered and confused. "Why me?" is a question that reverberates uncontrollably in our heads. Cancer, especially, provokes such a response. With time, "Why me?" is replaced by, "What now?" Today, more and more people are surviving cancer. How do we keep going afterward? How do we maintain the connection to Judaism and God that we once had? Do we need to rethink everything we once unwaveringly believed in? This moving volume of essays written by rabbis, cantors, and other Jewish professionals who have all experienced cancer deal with these questions and many more. Their personal stories are interwoven with Jewish texts and teachings.
