God In Search of Man is a classic of modern Jewish theology that is essential for all faiths. Heschel believed that no religious group had a monopoly on religious truth and this is his great statement on the nature of religious faith. Discussing how man seeks God’s presence, Heschel examines how the Jews are a chosen people and the idea of the prophet. In these ideas Heschel discovers the true relationship between God and His people, and defines how religious thought becomes faith.
Abraham Joshua Heschel is considered the greatest theologian of the twentieth-century, as well as being one of the most significant leaders in the USA.
“It speaks to all those for whom the Bible is a holy book.”
“One of the most compelling books about being human that has been written.”
