Overview

What does it mean that we are spiritual beings? Can humans bring harmony to their dual spiritual and material nature and achieve success? Shmuley Boteach tackles this important issue, arguing that Judaism possesses a core of wisdom that appeals to Jews and non-Jews alike.
Shmuley Boteach rejects Judaism seeking piety in abstractions, or rationalizing injustice and suffering, and says that it is primarily about seeking optimism and spirituality. Comparing Judaism with other faith traditions, he also contends that Judaism is a religion with a profound earthward orientation and is uniquely suited to modern-day men and women who desire professional success without starving their souls.
