This is a unique opportunity for students of Reform Judaism, and those with a general interest in Judaism, to enjoy fully the wide range of writings that are here presented as the essence of Reform Judaism. Writings and extracts have been chosen because they represent significant stages in the development of Reform theology; or because the thoughts expressed are as relevant today as when they were first composed. This collection is therefore an historic one, but also one that clearly sets out to promote the belief that Reform theology is not a fixed point, but a progressive revelation, and one that is an ongoing process for each generation.

Designed specifically with students in mind, the text contains pedagogical features and referencing to assist the reader. Never before published critical Jewish writings included with the additional benefit of contextualisation and commentary from a leading authority in the field. The themes are traced through the writings of prominent Reform rabbis from 1840 till today as they wrestle with major questions of faith and modernity. 'Jonathan Romain celebrates difference with clarity, conviction and understanding. It is an instructive voyage of religious discovery' - from the Preface by Sir Martin Gilbert Reform. Judaism is one of the most dynamic forces in the Jewish world. It dominates American Jewry, is bridging gaps in secular Jewish communities in Israel and occupies a leading place in the religious life of Britain today. It is instrumental in the rejuvenation of Jews within the former Soviet Union and in Europe it has helped to rekindle the embers of Jewish communities devastated by the Holocaust. And yet books offering access to Reform Judaism material and original sources are distinctly rare.
