God in search of man; a philosophy of Judaism by Abraham Joshua Heschel( Book )

95 editions published between 1955 and 2009 in English and German and held by 2,014 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abraham Joshua Heschel was one of the most revered religious leaders of the 20th century, and "God in Search of Man "and its companion volume," Man Is Not Alone," two of his most important books, are classics of modern Jewish theology. "God in Search of Man" combines scholarship with lucidity, reverence, and compassion as Dr. Heschel discusses not man's search for God but God's for man--the notion of a Chosen People, an idea which, he writes, "signifies not a quality inherent in the people but a relationship between the people and God." It is an extraordinary description of the nature of Biblical thought, and how that thought becomes faith

Between God and man; an interpretation of Judaism, from the writings of Abraham J. Heschel by Abraham Joshua Heschel( Book )

28 editions published between 1959 and 1997 in English and German and held by 1,024 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A selection of the writings of Abraham J. Heschel, professor of Jewish ethics and mysticism at the Jewish Theological Seminary of America. The book is valuable not only for the Jewish reader, for whom it was written, but also to the vast number of non-Jews for whom the rich theological and devotional life of the modern synagogue is largely unknown. The work is more than a comprehensive introduction to contemporary Judaism. It translates the full range of Biblical ideas and values into modern idiom. It has been described as "an intelligent, mature and well-reasoned attempt to create a viable synthesis between the devotion and learning of traditional Judaic thought and the philosophy and scholarship of Western civilization."

The insecurity of freedom; essays on human existence by Abraham Joshua Heschel( Book )

34 editions published between 1959 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,016 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

“America’s problem number one is… the promotion of spiritual homicide, the systematic liquidation of man as a person,” writes Dr. Heschel. Inquiring first into the day-to-day problems of our age, these essays uncover deeper concerns underlying social manifestations. Are we free when we fill our material needs merely? Isn’t the heart of the relationship between doctor and patient to be found in the discovery of compassion and not in the technology of medicine? Have we betrayed our children by making their education a means and not an end? Dr. Heschel calls for radical solutions, for grappling with the fundamental features of human existence. With knowledge and insight, he illuminates the perplexities of modern man and points the way toward a sense of significant being

Moral grandeur and spiritual audacity : essays by Abraham Joshua Heschel( Book )

14 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in English and Polish and held by 571 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dr. Abraham Joshua Heschel (1907-72), one of the foremost Jewish savants of our time, was internationally known as scholar, author, activist, and theologian. In his lifetime Heschel spoke and published widely. Arriving in the United States in flight from the brutalities of Nazi Germany, he never forgot that the search for the divine and for human spirituality is inseparable from the search for a just society. As a revered and beloved teacher, he impressed on his students, first at the Hebrew Union College in Cincinnati and then during his many years as Professor of Ethics and Mysticism at the Jewish Theological Seminary of America, the spiritual imperatives of prayer, of ecumenism, of social decency. This first collection of Dr. Heschel's essays is arranged in five groups: "Existence and Celebration," "No Time for Neutrality," "Toward a Just Society," "No Religion Is an Island" (on ecumenism), and "The Holy Dimension." The essays include a tribute to Reinhold Niebuhr and a discussion of Father Bernard Haring, the moral theologian. The appendix contains Carl Stern's famous television interview with Dr. Heschel, recorded shortly before his death. The book also includes an introduction to Dr. Heschel's life and thought by the editor, his daughter, Susannah Heschel, who holds the Abba Hillel Silver chair in Jewish Studies at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland. She is also the editor of the landmark collection On Being a Jewish Feminist
