A Great Collection of Brilliant Essays  Feb 25, 2004
Editor David Hazony has put together a fantastic collection by one of the great, and sadly little known, Jewish philosophers, Rabbi Eliezer Berkovits. The essays are both challenging and thought provoking. Berkovits' clear writing style makes his profound thoughts accessible to a wide array of readers (assuming your willing to put a little effort into it). The essays were written over the course of the latter half of the 20th Century. Even the earlier essays maintain their relevance to modern readers seeking to explore the depths of traditional Jewish thougt. This book is an excellent source for novices and scholars alike.
