Doing Jewish Theology: God, Torah & Israel in Modern Judaism

Doing Jewish Theology: God, Torah & Israel in Modern Judaism, by Neil Gilman

Gillman, a National Jewish Book Award winner, explores the six basic themes of Judaism: How can we know anything about God? What can Judaism teach us about God? What is the source of authority for what we believe and how we live? What is Torah and why is it so sacred? What, if at all, is God’s role in human suffering? What happens to us after we die? Gillman submits that his identification with the thinking of Mordecai Kaplan and Paul Tillich represented his gradual shift toward religious naturalism. His book is one of the most enlightening studies of a complex subject. –George Cohen
