JPS is Pleased to Announce the reissue of a Classic Work on Jewish Religious Thought

January 28, 2009

The 20th century's most important Jewish thinkers are showcased in this anthology

What do the most renowned Jewish thinkers of the 20th century have to say on topics that are central to Judaism? Arthur A. Cohen and Paul Mendes-Flohr’s classic work, Contemporary Jewish Religious Thought, has been cited by many as the most important and comprehensive source for gaining insight into the views of such preeminent Jewish figures as Eugene Borowitz, Blu Greenberg, Jacob Neusner, Gershom Scholem, Adin Steinsaltz and more.

JPS is proud to reissue the highly acclaimed anthology as 20th Century Jewish Religious Thought. Featuring 140 concise, authoritative essays that define and reflect upon a wide range of ideas – including the apocalypse, issues of conscience, conversion, eternity and time, evil, free will, mysticism and many other provocative topics – this volume provides striking insights into both the Jewish experience and the Judeo-Christian tradition.
