By Michael Lerner (436 Pages)Publisher: Jossey-Bass, 2001
Between the covers of this book is a treasure trove of great fiction, poetry, social analysis, and spiritual insight by renowned contributors such as Philip Roth, Marge Piercy, Senator Joseph I. Lieberman, Naomi Wolf, Norman Podhoretz, Jonathan Rosen, Robert Pinsky, Yehuda Amichai, Rachel Adler, Nathan Englander, Daniel Boyarin, Adrienne Rich, Arthur Waskow, William Safire, Zalman M. Schachter-Shalomi, and many others. Despite their disparate opinions and points of views, these writers have been chosen by Michael Lerner because they transcend the cynicism and narcissistic self-indulgence of contemporary culture and contribute to the Kabbalistic vision of a world that has ben shattered but can be healed.
You don't have to be Jewish to be moved by and to learn from these authors. The poetry, fiction, memoirs and essays in this book are provocative and engaging, entertaining and inspiring, irreverent, and filled with awe.
