Dr. Borowitz is a scholar and educator whose works transcend any particular movement or approach to Judaism and to Jewish beliefs. In this book, he and coauthor Frances Schwartz present a diverse series of brief essays, each of which addresses a particular question or issue of Jewish theology. The authors have selected their topics with care, so the reader is treated to thoughts about God, prayer, Jewish texts, Jewish thinkers, and much more. Each essay is an introduction to a topic; readers can use this book as a survey and then follow up with further study and reflection of the themes that speak to them. Bibliography, glossary.
