From the Back Cover:

This engaging argument for the future of Jewish theology, written by a renowned Jewish scholar, provides a masterly examination of the faith, its history, and its place in the modern world. 

Exploring both its historical evolution and Judaism’s relationship with Israel and the wider world today, this fascinating book traces foundational Jewish structures and concepts through the discussion and interpretation of Jewish texts, rituals and prayers. It outlines the history of Jewish theology, considering the notion of monotheism and its manifestation in the Jewish faith; the ethics of the Jewish character; and considers thematic elements of Judaism, including the centrality attached to sacred locations including Jerusalem. In debating Judaism’s future as a religion, Kepnes strikes a positive note. He argues that we must acknowledge holiness as a ritual and ethical reality in order to heal the rift between different forms of Jewish practice and theology. In doing so, he speaks to both Jews and non-Jews, and demonstrates through textual readings how Jews, Christians, and Muslims can understand and share their theological riches.
