By Kenneth Michael Tanenbaum

Abraham Joshua Heschel was one of the most influential Jewish thinkers of the 20th century. A rabbi, philosopher, and theologian, he wrote extensively on Jewish mysticism, ethics, and the Holocaust. His work has been praised for its depth, originality, and passion. In this book, Kenneth Michael Tanenbaum explores the sources of Heschel's thought, drawing on his writings, lectures, and sermons.

Tanenbaum argues that Heschel's thought was shaped by three main sources: the Bible, the Talmud, and the Kabbalah. He shows how Heschel used these sources to develop a unique and compelling vision of Judaism that emphasized the importance of wonder, awe, and compassion.

The Bible was the foundation of Heschel's thought. He believed that the Bible was a record of God's revelation to the Jewish people, and he spent his life studying and interpreting its teachings. Heschel found in the Bible a rich source of wisdom and inspiration, and he used its stories, laws, and prophecies to develop his own understanding of Judaism.

The Talmud was another important source of Heschel's thought. The Talmud is a vast collection of rabbinic teachings that was compiled over several centuries. It contains a wide range of material, including legal discussions, moral exhortations, and mystical teachings. Heschel was drawn to the Talmud's depth and complexity, and he found in it a rich source of insights into the nature of Judaism.

The Kabbalah was the third major source of Heschel's thought. The Kabbalah is a Jewish mystical tradition that developed in the Middle Ages. It teaches that there is a hidden dimension to reality that can be accessed through meditation and other spiritual practices. Heschel was fascinated by the Kabbalah, and he found in it a way to deepen his understanding of Judaism and to connect with the divine.

Tanenbaum's book is a valuable resource for anyone interested in Heschel's thought or in Jewish mysticism. It is a clear and concise to Heschel's work, and it provides a wealth of insights into the sources of his thought. Tanenbaum's book is a must-read for anyone who wants to understand one of the most important Jewish thinkers of the 20th century.
