    Accessible for Adults Who Are Searching

    All of us working more hours with little time to think about the larger and innermost issues can find, through examples of people searching for meaning, how to make time for ourselves to think more spiritually. This book has been that kind of guide for me.

    Rabbi Dennis S. Ross, author of God in Our Relationships

    Professor Carol Ochs is an insightful counselor and gifted story teller. She describes sixteen individuals and their struggles - personal and engaging narratives about aging, loneliness, the direction of life, reconciliation, artistic expression and loss of loved ones, in short, an amazing and wide spectrum of human experience. A reader witnesses the candid confrontation with the challenges of life - and the spiritual growth that follows. Reaching Godward is a collection of moving stories about continuing spiritual maturation of ordinary people in relation to their loved ones, colleagues and God. A person will read these tales of others and learn about oneself. Professor Ochs will have deep and substantial appeal to those with an interest - professional or personal - in counseling, pastoral care or spiritual guidance. I strongly recommend Reaching Godward to those desiring spiritual guidance as well as to those who seek to become a spiritual guide, as well to anyone with an interest in how people confront life with strength and hope. Reaching Godward can change a person's life.

    Huh? Shabbat Shalom is NOT the title of this book!

    REACHING GODWARD is the title of this ground-breaking book that examines the state of Jewish spirituality across a spectrum of laypersons. In the past, surveys have been published in which rabbis, intellectuals and community leaders discussed the 'condition of Jewish belief.' But these were so often the prescriptive perceptions of an elite, not the beliefs and practices of laity. Many persons today are on a spiritual quest, and Dr. Ochs has documented how individuals are the end of the 20th century and the beginning of the 21st are shaping themselves and growing spiritually. I found it a delightful and easy read, but the insights gained have stayed and challenged me.
