Contemporary theology, and Jewish theology in particular, Michael Fishbane asserts, now lies fallow, beset by strong critiques from within and without. For Jewish reality, a coherent and wide-ranging response in thoroughly modern terms is needed. Sacred Attunement is Fishbane's attempt to renew Jewish theology for our time, in the larger context of modern and postmodern challenges to theology and theological thought in the broadest sense. The first part of the book regrounds theology in this setting and opens up new pathways through nature, art, and the theological dimension as a whole. In the second section, Fishbane introduces his hermeneutical theology - one grounded in the interpretation of scripture as a distinctly Jewish practice. The third section focuses on modes of self-cultivation for awakening and sustaining a covenant theology. The final section takes up questions of scripture, authority, belief, despair, and obligation as theological topics in their own right. The first full-scale Jewish theology in America since Abraham J. Heschel's God in Search of Man and the first comprehensive Jewish philosophical theology since Franz Rosenzweig's Star of Redemption, Sacred Attunement is a work of uncommon personal integrity and originality from one of the most distinguished scholars of Judaica in our time.

Die Geschichte der jüdischen Mystik vor der Kabbala ist erstaunlicherweise bislang noch nicht geschrieben worden. Peter Schäfer füllt mit diesem Buch, das mit seiner gut verständlichen Sprache nicht nur für Spezialisten gedacht ist, die Lücke. Beginnend mit der Thronwagenvision des Propheten Ezechiel reicht der Bogen über die Henochschriften, Qumran, Philo von Alexandrien und die rabbinische Literatur bis zur sogenannten Merkava-Mystik. In genauer und einfühlsamer Lektüre der einschlägigen Texte wird der Frage nachgegangen, was sie uns über die uralte menschliche Sehnsucht vermitteln wollen, Gott nahezukommen. Das Werk bildet die Synthese eines Autors, der sich ein Leben lang mit diesem Thema befaßt hat.

At every critical juncture in Jewish history, Jews have understood a dynamic theology to be essential for a vital Jewish community. This important collection sets the next stage of Jewish theological thought, bringing together a cross section of interesting new voices from all movements in Judaism to inspire and stimulate discussion now and in the years to come. Provocative and wide-ranging, these invigorating and creative insights from a new generation's thought leaders provide a coherent and inspiring picture of Jewish belief in our time. "Demonstrates that there is not only a future to the Jewish theological enterprise in America but an exciting, fully realized, and challenging future. Abraham Joshua Heschel and Mordecai Kaplan would be thrilled. This book belongs on the shelf of every serious student of Jewish thought."---Rabbi Neil Gillman, PhD, Aaron Rabinowitz and Simon H. Rifkind Emeritus Professor of Jewish Philosophy, The Jewish Theological Seminary; author, Doing Jewish Theology: God, Torah and Israel in Modern Judaism "Intellectually and spiritually exhilarating. Indeed, it augurs well for the future of American Judaism."---Paul Mendes-Flohr, PhD, professor of Jewish thought, University of Chicago Divinity School; professor emeritus, Hebrew University of Jerusalem "The Jewish conversation about God has continued for thousands of years. The wonderful collection of new voices represented in [this book] enriches not only the conversation but also the reader who will discover how rich, varied, and meaningful that conversation can be."---Rabbi Laura Geller, senior rabbi, Temple Emanuel of Beverly Hills "Anyone engaged in constructing a contemporary Jewish theology must proceed carefully so as not to try to shove the square pegs of modern thought and experience into the cylindrical holes of classical Jewish life and thinking. Nevertheless, an awareness of all these challenges should not discourage the project and progress of Jewish theology, but rather serve to mark the path along which the journey should proceed. It is not an easy or identifiable road. Flipping through the pages of this book, you will readily see that we live in an age when the boundaries of what constitutes Jewish theological thought are as wide as they are sometimes imperceptible."---From the Introduction From the Garden of Eden onward, the God-idea has taken on a varied and ever-evolving number of expressions within Judaism. From Mount Sinai to the prophets of the exile, from Maimonides' Guide for the Perplexed to Kabbalah, from Chasidism to mid-twentieth-century North America, theological inquiry, diverse in its content and idiom, has sustained the Jewish People. The passionate voices of a new generation of Jewish thinkers continue that dialogue with God, examining the dynamics of what Jews can believe today.

Eine Meisternovelle, ein literarischer Coup – Maxim Biller erzählt eine Geschichte über den großen jüdischen Schriftsteller Bruno Schulz Der 1942 ermordete jüdische Autor und Zeichner Bruno Schulz wird zur literarischen Hauptfigur in Maxim Billers neuem Buch – und zum Seismographen künftiger Katastrophen. Maxim Biller ist mit dieser Novelle etwas Erstaunliches gelungen: Inspiriert von der osteuropäischen Erzähltradition eines Michail Bulgakow oder Isaac Bashevis Singer, nimmt er seine Leser in einem magischen, burlesken Text mit auf die Reise in die polnische Stadt Drohobycz, in die Welt des Schriftstellers Bruno Schulz und in das Jahr 1938. Er führt uns in einen Keller, in dem Bruno Schulz, der seinen Lebensunterhalt als Kunstlehrer verdient und vom literarischen Durchbruch in ganz Europa träumt, einen Brief an Thomas Mann schreibt. Er hofft, dass der weltberühmte Schriftsteller ihm helfen kann, im Ausland einen Verlag zu finden – dann würde er auch endlich einen Grund haben, seine Heimat für immer verlassen. Denn die Zeichen des kommenden Unheils sind unübersehbar und nähren seinen ständigen Begleiter, die Angst. Im Kopf von Bruno Schulz entsteht eine apokalyptische Vision, die vorwegnimmt, was kurz darauf im besetzten Polen tatsächlich passieren wird. Und es entsteht ein literarisches Kunstwerk, brillant geschrieben, voll von schwarzem Humor. »Billers Sprache ist eine Melodie, die einen anweht, als lebte Albert Camus noch, als schriebe Gottfried Benn plötzlich Short Stories, als klopfte der Existentialismus aus seinem Grab zu uns herüber ...Biller ist ein großer Erzähler.« (Welt am Sonntag) »Biller ist ein phantastischer Geschichtenfinder altmodischer Pracht, dem an der Welt gelegen ist, an der Wahrheit, am Leben.« (FAS)

Contemporary thought is marked by heated debates about the character, purpose and form of religious thinking and its relation to a range of ideals: spiritual, moral, aesthetic, political and ecological, to name the obvious. This book addresses the interrelation between theological thinking and the complex and diverse realms of human ideals. What are the ideals appropriate to our moment in human history, and how do these ideals derive from or relate to theological reflection in our time? In Theological Reflection and the Pursuit of Ideals internationally renowned scholars from a range of disciplines (physics, art, literary studies, ethics, comparative religion, history of ideas, and theology) engage with these crucial questions with the intention of articulating a new and historically appropriate vision of theological reflection and the pursuit of ideals for our global times.
