The author states his purpose in his no-nonsense Preface: To present representative selections from the writings of "four of the most significant religious thinkers of our time"--Jacques Maritain, Nicolas Berdyaev, Martin Buber, and Paul Tillich.

NO OF PAGES: 313 SUB CAT I: Philosophy SUB CAT II: SUB CAT III: DESCRIPTION: This book has changed the spiritual awareness of countless readers. Written by one of the twentieth century's greatest theologians, "Judaism and Modern Man" explores the ways in which the Jewish religion relates to our society, and to us as individuals, and how we can draw this knowledge into our everyday lives. Herberg discusses the distinctive qualities of our relationships with the world today-relationships between God, ourselves, and our peers; between the individual and society; between religion and society-and traces our spiritual threads that connect us to this age of modernity. In a time when we sometimes need to look closely to find our ties to spirituality, this classic work, originally published in 1951, helps contemporary readers understand Judaism's place in today's world.NOTES: Purchased at Half Price Books SUBTITLE: An Interpretation of Jewish Religion… (mere)
