By Shai Held
Abraham Joshua Heschel (1907-1972) used to be a prolific pupil, impassioned theologian, and fashionable activist who participated within the black civil rights move and the crusade opposed to the Vietnam warfare. He has been hailed as a hero, venerated as a visionary, and without end quoted as a devotional author. during this sympathetic, but serious, exam, Shai Held elicits the overarching subject matters and cohesion of Heschel’s incisive and insightful notion. concentrating on the assumption of transcendence—or the flow from self-centeredness to God-centeredness—Held places Heschel into discussion with modern Jewish thinkers, Christian theologians, devotional writers, and philosophers of religion.
