In his accessible, perceptive introduction to the central features and figures in Judaism, Norman Solomon discusses the religion as a living force, in all its contemporary richness and variety. He presents spiritual leaders, poets, philosophers, and even eccentrics--including the mystic who tried to convert the Pope--while also addressing such questions as: "How has Judaism changed since biblical days and How does the secular state of Israel resolve the conflicts of "Church" and state?"
