Shmuley Boteach

Publisher: Duckworth  

What does it mean that we are spiritual begins? Can humans bring harmony to their dual spiritual and material nature and achieve success? After the astonishing success of Kosher Sex, Shmuley Boteach tackles this important issue in another freshly argues book that will stir up debate. Arguing that Judaism possesses a core of wisdom that appeals to Jews and non-Jews alike, Shmuley Boteach rejects Judaism seeking piety in abstractions, in rationalizing injustice and suffering, in explaining the Holocaust away as a punishment for assimilation. He pleads for recognition of the fact that, unlike Christianity, Judaism is not about death of suffering, but primarily about seeking optimism and spirituality. Judaism is a religion with a profound earthward orientation and is uniquely suited to modern-day men and women who desire professional success without starving their souls. In a modern world riddled with angst, this book will have an amazingly positive impact on how our relation to society should be understood.
