Read from February 26 to May 21, 2011

I have to say that this is the best book concerning Jewish thought and philosophy that I have read. It might be about 100 pages longer than it needed to be, but that isn't to say that I didn't enjoy reading every page. I love the way that Heschel orders his ideas: working from a concern of philosophy - specifically metaphysics and ethics - and ties these questions and desires to the prophetic imagination and relevance to Torah; further on to halacha and agada and ends with Jewish Identity and Israel.

I will definitely be reading more by AJH.
