David J. Wolpe

Publisher: Henry Holt

Judaism shares in the rebirth of interest in traditional religions and, as Wolpe presents it, welcomes that interest in order to both bring secular Jews back to the faith and make converts. In his clear and welcoming primer, Wolpe says a person chooses Judaism "To Grow in Soul," "To Join a People," and "To Seek God," as the titles of his three chapters state. Much of what Wolpe imparts--Judaism's joyousness, dedication to good works, love of learning, community solidarity, concern for justice--will be familiar; other aspects of the religion, particularly the open nature of the Jewish sense of being chosen by God, will pack the power of pleasant surprise for many. Some Christians, especially members of the peace churches (Mennonites, Quakers, Brethren), may think they have heard lots of this sermon before. They have: a great deal of it is bedrock Christianity.
