To Heal a Fractured World

To Heal a Fractured World

$56.09

Paperback
The Chief Rabbi propounds his views on the ethics of responsibility - believing that in this area the Jewish religion has much to contribute to the modern world, a world in urgent need of peace and reconciliation.

- Publisher More than any previous generation, we have been tempted to imagine that the individual's needs are the sole source of meaning. Here Rabbi Sacks argues that this pre-occupation with self is a mistake and that ethics are concerned with the life we live together. Rabbi Sacks shows a profound engagement with the human condition today, talking with as much authority about Sigmund Freud or Karl Marx as he does about the Bible. This is a clarion call to the outside world to come to its senses.
