Arthur Waskow's paperback is a sequel to his 1978 classic that set in motion the Jewish renewal movement. This volume is a vibrant blend of spiritual biography, hermeneutics, prophecy, and visionary prowess.
Waskow offers startling and thought-provoking reinterpretations of Eden, the Exodus, the Song of Songs, the story of Joseph and his brothers, and much more. In addition, he squares off with difficult questions swirling around the Holocaust, the treatment of women in Judaism, Palestine and Israel, and the boundaries of Jewish peoplehood. Throughout, he hammers home the point that God and the world are two aspects of the same reality. His closing comments reveal the relevance of Jewish renewal to peacemaking, the good earth, sexuality, and the family.
