From the publisher's description: "Contemporary Jewish Religious Thought contains 140 specially commissioned short essays that have been written by luminary thinkers from across the full spectrum of Jewish belief and practice. As a compendium, it is unique for the broad focus of its inquiry and as a collection of disparate points of view on the issues of greatest concern in Judaism after the events of World War II. As a record of present-day religious discourse, it reflects no preferred ideology from the four main denominations of Judaism--Reform, Reconstructionist, Conservative, and Orthodox. Therefore it achieves a balance among the intellectual, theological, and philosophical modes of thinking."
