    1. Not only am I perpetually inspired spiritually and poetically by Abraham Joshua Heschel, I now have Held s intoxicating book to UNDERSTAND him intellectually and theologically This is no small accomplishment Heschel s writing is labyrinthine, majestic, and recursive Often contradictory too Held does a PHENOMENAL job threading together statements from Heschel s oeuvre into a cogent philosophical, spiritual, and theological tapestry This would have been laudatory enough given the complicated task [...]


    2. I was raised Catholic, consider myself agnostic but am enrapt with Rabbi Heschel This book makes it all the better to know him by Studying the life and thoughts of this amazing person only makes me know what it means to be a better human and this study is one of the better ones on Heschel that I have read.



    3. I recently started reading Heschel, and this was exactly what I was looking for a synoptic account and interpretation of his thought It s clarified throughout in party by bringing Heschel into conversation with other thinkers, both Jewish and Christian Held s avowed purpose is to offer a sympathetic, yet not uncritical, reading of Heschel and to show that he still has much to offer I d say he succeeds admirably.


    4. Having just tasted it, I know already that I ll give it 5 stars The handful of pages I ve read around page 200 beautifully clarify the meaning of Heschel s book Man s Quest for God, with which I have wrestled since reading it last summer The perfect holiday gift to this Christian prayer aspirer from my wife s brother s Reform Jewish family Many thanks to you and all our Abrahamic forebears and fore thinkers


    5. I finally put aside this heavy I m referring to the writing, as well as the girth book If I want to know about Heschel, I ll go read some of his own writing.
