Book Overview

Elegant, passionate, and filled with the love of God's creation, Abraham Joshua Heschel's The Sabbath has been hailed as a classic of Jewish spirituality ever since its original publication-and has been read by thousands of people seeking meaning in modern life. In this brief yet profound meditation on the meaning of the Seventh Day, Heschel introduced the idea of an architecture of holiness that appears not in space but in time Judaism, he argues, is a religion of time: it finds meaning not in space and the material things that fill it but in time and the eternity that imbues it, so that the Sabbaths are our great cathedrals.

   WOW! This book is rich!
Some are excellent books. Some are inspirational. It's either that or they're going to have to pay the price." It has all the trimmings of a fine book, with gems on every page. He uses word imagery from the sages to paint pictures on every page. It's the kind of book you can read over and over again and get something different.
   Five plus and more stars you have
Matthew Robinson's book is the best available for understanding the Christian sense of time. One by one they come to the scientist, all with very simple observations. His first creation, Isaac, was also the first to be blessed and called holy. From there he builds an understanding of the pivotal role that the Sabbath plays in Jewish life. The illustrations truly enhance the book _ not essential but an indication of the care that has gone into this book, Reichert said.
   Approachable Philosophy
In "The Fall," Heschel writes, "the storm blew in and we all fell." His metaphorical descriptions of the Passion are vivid and tangible. Though most of his philosophy is comprehensible, he allowed his readers to relish the simplicity of the weekly convocation. Several copies have been given away to friends and family members of the writer.
