Description
 

The subject of repentance, or teshuvah,
captivated Rabbi Soloveitchik’s imagination, and it is easy to
understand why. As a transformation of the personality in response to
the divine will, teshuvah uncovers
the depths of human nature and of man’s relationship with God. In
addressing repentance, Rabbi Soloveitchik confronted questions such as:
Can a person change? Is one’s personality static or dynamic? What is the
relationship between reason and emotion, between sin and suffering,
between guilt and growth, past and future, free will and causality? How
is one to approach God – with love or fear, as an individual or as part
of a community, appealing to grace or justice, with a sense of
self-nullification or self-worth?


Given
the issues raised, it is no wonder that some of Rabbi Soloveitchik’s
most religiously powerful and psychologically penetrating insights
appear in his discussions of repentance. This classic volume speaks to
the sensitive and searching soul not just during the days of penitence
but throughout the entire year.


With a foreword by Dr. Itzhak D. Goldberg and an afterword by Rabbi Reuven Ziegler.
