Learned a lot about Rabbi Greenberg's views of Tzelem Elohim. The last chapter in the book regarding Messianism and its need for a dialectical approach to keep its excesses in check was particularly interesting. As with the books of David Hartman, this book exemplifies the sophisticated and complex approach to Jewish philosophy and theology which, while not incredibly emotionally moving, is necessary to combining Judaism and Modernity.
