In this first volume of a five-volume collectionof parashat hashavua commentaries, Rabbi Sir Jonathan Sacks explores these intersections as they relate to universal concerns of freedom, love, responsibility, identity, and destiny. Chief Rabbi Sacks fuses Jewish tradition, Western philosophy, and literature to present a highly developed understanding of the human condition under God's sovereignty. Erudite and eloquent, Covenant & Conversation allows us to experience Chief Rabbi Sacks' sophisticated approach to life lived in an ongoing dialogue with the Torah.
