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 t man's search for God but God's for man--the tion of a Chosen People, an idea which, he writes, signifies t 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.
Abraham Joshua Heschel (1907-72) was internationally known as a scholar, author, activist, and theologian. he was Professor of Ethics and Mysticism at the Jewish Theological Seminary of America.
