Rabbi Lawrence Kushner has written a platitudinous and vague book about Jewish spirituality, which is more likely to confuse than clarify for all but the most abstract-minded people. The sole exception is his afterword, which does get down to some specifics of Jewish thought, but it has a defensive feel, like it is written to fend of those offensive Christian proselytizers. Having grown up in Baptist country, I understand why one might feel this way, but I do not think it is especially helpful.
