Reading the world through Jewish traditional thought   Dec 18, 2005
Rabbi Lopes- Cardozo is a Jewish religious thinker who has knowledge of the Western philosophical tradition, and the cultural challenges facing the Jewish world today. This present work is another effort to extend his reading of the Jewish Tradition in such a way that it will also appeal to the non-observant.
Fascinating but not accessible to most potential readers  Sep 14, 2005
Nathan Lopes Cardozo, who writes from a modern Orthodox perspective, expresses several fascinating and novel ideas about spirituality, contemporary life, and the Jewish tradition. Unfortunately, the book will not reach a broad audience. It assumes far too much detailed, even arcane, knowledge of Jewish texts and interpretations -- knowledge that many or most of Lopes Cardozo's intended readers will not have. There are artful ways of popularizing the Jewish religion without dumbing it down, but Lopes Cardozo does not try. As a result, thoughtful readers familiar with Western philosophy and literature but not with rabbinic views of Jewish tradition will not find the book useful.

This is too bad because Lopes Cardozo delivers fascinating insights into such matters as the significance of Sabbath observance, the importance of dialogue with Conservative and Reform Jews, and modern man and woman's need for ritual. This book reads like a set of transcribed sermons and should have gone through a painstaking editing process.
