Renewal : a guide to the values-filled life by Shmuel Boteach( )

9 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 561 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Our culture is showing the cracks of a growing fracture. Soaring divorce rates; a crippled economy that rewards the few and punishes the many; religious-fueled hatred; record rates of depression-the headlines paint a grim picture. We inhabit a society that desperately needs fixing. But as Rabbi Shmuley Boteach reveals in his new book, Renewal, our society can made whole again when we as individuals make the choice to live a life based on values. For too long, conversations about values have been derailed by political movements trying to score points over hot-button issues like gay marriage or abortion. Boteach, one of our wisest and most respected counselors and spiritual experts, reaches deep into our history and into our shared religious legacy to revive the key universal values of Judaism for our struggling world. He presents these age-old ideas as guideposts for the challenges of modern times. These values, whose roots are in the Bible and thousands of years of Jewish spiritual living, can be applied to anyone in the modern world-from Christians and Muslims to atheists and agnostics-who want to renew their existence and recommit themselves to the most precious things in life. Renewal shows everyone how to use the timeless values of the Hebrew Bible and Judaism to live a more fulfilling, modern life."--Publisher's description

The Michael Jackson tapes : a tragic icon reveals his soul in intimate conversation by Shmuel Boteach( Book )

20 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 534 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 2000-2001, Michael Jackson sat down with his close friend and spiritual guide, Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, to record what turned out to be the most intimate and revealing conversations of his life. It was Michael's wish to bare his soul and unburden himself to a public that he knew was deeply suspicious of him. The resulting thirty hours are the basis of The Michael Jackson Tapes. In these searingly honest conversations, Michael exposes his emotional pain and profound loneliness, his longing to be loved, and the emptiness of his fame. He takes us into his childhood and speaks of the measures he took to try and heal. He discusses how he came to be alienated from his strong religious anchor, his tortured yet loving relationship with his siblings, his father and his yearning for a time when they might finally reconcile, and his most personal friendships.--From publisher description

For anyone who has ever wondered where our popular culture is taking us, Hating Women is at once a social commentary and a call for change."--Jacket
Kosher Jesus by Shmuel Boteach( Book )

9 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jesus of Nazareth is the most famous Jew who ever lived, yet remains profoundly alienated from his own people. At best he is viewed as the founder of a new religion which for millennia was hostile to Judaism. At worst he is seen as the source of world anti-Semitism, with the charge that the Jews were responsible for his death being the impetus for the murder of countless Jews throughout the ages. But the historical Jesus is also foreign to most Christians who are oblivious to the life he lived as a Jew, his real mission in ancient Judea, the source of most of his celebrated teachings, and his firm attachment to his people. Shmuley Boteach offers us a view of Jesus, based on Jewish and Christian sources, that will serve as a bridge between two faith communities

The broken American male : and how to fix him by Shmuel Boteach( Book )

5 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: Why do American husbands come home from work too exhausted to interact with their families? When did a healthy quest for prosperity become a twisted game no one can win? How did BlackBerries and internet porn become more interesting to men than their flesh-and-blood spouses? Shmuley Boteach has made a great study of how families live today-both in his work as a rabbi privately and as host of TLC's "Shalom in the Home". He's discovered a disturbing common thread in the families he meets: men responding to the pressure of competition in their work lives by turning away from their loved ones. In a world that judges men by the size of their paychecks and the wattage of their fame, it's all too easy to lose sight of what is truly valuable in life. Men who consider themselves failures and don't love themselves turn into stressed-out dads, distracted husbands and miserable human beings. For these men, alcohol, the internet and sporting events serve as numbing stand-ins for read life. In THE BROKEN AMERICAN MALE, Boteach doesn't just outline the problems facing marriages and nuclear families. He also offers practical, inspiring solutions, showing how wives can reach out to their husbands, helping them become heroes again to their own families
An intelligent person's guide to Judaism by Shmuel Boteach( Book )

12 editions published between 1999 and 2006 in English and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What does it mean that we are spiritual beings? Can humans bring harmony to their dual spiritual and material nature and achieve success? Shmuley Boteach tackles this important issue in a freshly argued book that will stir up debate. Arguing that Judaism possesses a core of wisdom that appeals to Jews and non-Jews alike, Shmuley Boteach rejects Judaism seeking piety in abstractions, in rationalising injustice and suffering, in explaining the Holocaust away as a punishment for assimilation. He pleads for recognition of the fact that, unlike Christianity, Judaism is not about death or suffering, but primarily about seeking optimism and spirituality. Judaism is a religion with a profound earthward orientation and is uniquely suited to modern-day men and women who desire professional success without starving their souls."--BOOK JACKET

Wrestling with the divine : a Jewish response to suffering by Shmuel Boteach( Book )

4 editions published between 1995 and 2018 in English and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Starting from the premise that the suffering of the Holocaust, more than anything else, "serves as the primary challenge to the religious convictions of our generation" and the argument that Judaism is unique among systems of religious belief in that it offers no satisfactory answer to the question of suffering (e.g. the Holocaust cannot be understood), proposes how Jews should relate to the disaster of the Holocaust while arguing against approaches offered by several prominent Jewish thinkers. Contends that the proper Jewish approach to the Holocaust is to wrestle with God. Boteach bases his thinking on the Torah, classic Jewish sources, and contemporary Jewish thinkers
