The Modern Guide To Judaism.

Boteach, Shmuley.

Picture of The Modern Guide To Judaism.
Rabbi Boteach sets out a very personal vision of what is wrong with today's Judaism and how much Jewish values have to offer the world. Comparing Judaism with other faith traditions, he contends that it 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.

Does it mean nothing at all that we are spiritual beings? What does one of the world's oldest religions have to say? After the astonishing success of his latest book, Kosher Sex, Shmuley Boteach now tackles these important issues in another freshly argued, provocative book that will stir debate. Convinced that Judaism possesses a core of wisdom that appeals to everyone, Shmuley Boteach ferociously argues against Jews seeking piety in abstractions, in rationalising injustice, in explaining the holocaust away as a punishment for assimilation. He pleads for recognition that Judaism is not about death or suffering, but is about seeking optimism and spirituality, as is life. In a modern world riddled with angst, this book will have an astonishing impact on how our relation to society should be understood.
