Overview

The most comprehensive collection to date of Jewish religious writings from the Latter half of this century, this carefully constructed anthology highlights the enormous range of theological viewpoints and methods that have characterized Jewish theological reflection in modern times. An extraordinarily rich compilation, it includes selections from Orthodox thinkers and feminists, Israelis and Americans, rationalists and mystics, and post-modernists. Extensive introductions place these writings in historical, and philosophical context. Topics addressed include God, creation, revelation, redemption, covenant/chosenness, law, the Holocaust, and the modern state of Israel.
