Product Description

Elegant, passionate, and filled with the love of God's creation, Abraham Joshua Heschel's The Sabbath has been hailed as a classic of Jewish spirituality ever since its original publication--and has been read by thousands of people seeking meaning in modern life. In this brief yet profound meditation on the meaning of the Seventh Day, Heschel introduced the idea of an "architecture of holiness" that appears not in space but in time Judaism, he argues, is a religion of time: it finds meaning not in space and the material things that fill it but in time and the eternity that imbues it, so that "the Sabbaths are our great cathedrals."

Author Bio

Abraham Joshua Heschel was internationally known as a scholar, author, activist, and theologian. He was Professor of Ethics and Mysticism at the Jewish Theological Seminary of America.

Editorial Reviews

Timeless. Read it, and be ready to be changed.
Clearly Heschel's most beloved book, The Sabbath is much more than a book about the Sabbath. It is, rather, our century's most illuminating study of the dynamics of Jewish ritual living.

    In the introduction alone there are mistakes and misunderstandings. The Israel people did not ask God for a temple - God gave Moses the blueprints representing the tabernacle of God in heaven. Then there seems to be no understanding that the whole tabernacle is actually a picture of the plan of salvation and THEN there is the GIGANTIC misunderstanding of what the Sabbath actually is. It is;

    - a memorial of creation

    - a day that is blessed and holy

    - a sign of who you worship (the Creator of heaven and earth)

    - made for mankind. It is not only a Jewish day

    - a day of rest from the busy-ness of everyday life

    Don't waste your time or money on this - actually read the Bible and see for yourself (not what a preacher or popular books) say about the Sabbth... I think you'll be surprised.

    The only use I have for this books is to fix a wonky table!
