Covenant and Conversation: A Weekly Reading of the Jewish Bible - Genesis. Rabbi Jonathan Sacks (Hardcover)
The Torah is an encounter between past and present, moment and eternity, that frames Jewish consciousness. In this first volume of a five-volume collection of parashat hashavua, Rabbi Sir Jonathan Sacks explores these intersections as they relate to universal concerns of freedom, love, responsibility, identity and destiny. Rabbi Sacks fuses Jewish tradition, Western philosophy and literature to present a highly developed understanding of the human condition under God s sovereignty. Erudite and eloquent, Covenant & Conversation allows us to experience Rabbi Sacks' sophisticated approach to life lived in an ongoing dialogue with the Torah.
