The charismatic spirituality of Abraham Joshua Heschel : mystical teachings of an American rabbi by S. Daniel Breslauer( )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a reflection on the teachings of Abraham Joshua Heschel, a teacher to an entire generation of rabbis. Breslauer looks at Heschel as an "ethical scholar," a teacher of both Jewish and non-Jewish traditions, and a Jewish Kabbalah mystic. The book addresses Heschel's concern that a spiritual crisis existed for all religions. In particular, Breslauer's examination of Heschel's development of the "depth-theology" concept to address the spiritual crisis is the central focus of this book. Breslauer draws attention to Hesechel's use of Jewish tradition and his understanding of God, not as a ph

11 editions published between 1990 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book, first published in 1990, summarizes and evaluates the contribution of Martin Buber as a theorist of myth. Buber provides explicit guidelines for understanding and evaluating myths. He describes reality as twofold: people live either in a world of things, to which they relate as a subject controlling its objects, or in a world of self-conscious others, with whom one relates as fellow subjects. Human beings require both types of reality, but also a means of moving from one to the other. Buber understands myths as one such means by which people pass from I-It reality to I-You meeting

Martin Buber's myth of Zion by S. Daniel Breslauer( Book )

5 editions published in 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book provides an insightful study of the Jewish theologian Martin Buber, and combines a review of the unconventional Zionism he proposed with a sensitivity to myth as the basis of an inclusive civil religion. The multifaceted nature of this work examines Buber's embrace of myth, and his application of myth to both biblical studies and political theory. It pays special attention to the way Buber's thinking about Zion applied to religious ethical issues such as ecology, education, ritual, and, as a continuing theme throughout the book, to the conflict between those Buber called Jews and Arabs in the land of Palestine"--Back cover
