9780765700117: Teach Me about God: The Meaning and Significance of the Name of God

While the essence of God will always remain a mystery to man, much has been written through the ages about how God relates to the world. In this regard, the Divine names are of ultimate significance to man for they represent His attributes. Focusing on these names in the context in which they appear, Teach Me about God discovers and delineates the way God relates to the world as seen and put forth by the Jewish tradition. Texts for the book were selected from the lives of Adam, Noah, the Patriarchs and Moses; the prophecies of Isaiah, Jeremiah, and Ezekiel; and the Book of Psalms to illustrate the significance of the Divine encounter and the relationship between God and Man.

Written for the layperson, Teach Me About God can serve as a source book to teach the fundamentals of Jewish thinking on how God relates to the world in general and man in particular.

About the Author:

Rabbi Walter Orenstein, a former professor of Jewish Studies at Yeshiva University, is a noted lecturer and author of Torah as Our Guide, The Cantor's Manual of Jewish Law, Etched in Stone, Letters to My Daughter, and The Transformation of a Skeptic. He lives with his wife in Baltimore, MD.

Review:

[Orenstein's] book deeply explores the mystery and essence of God's names in the contexts in which they appear...a natural addition to the rabbinical student's reading list...enlightening. (Jewish Book World)

This book is aimed at the knowledgeable reader who wants to look at the Tanach , prayer, and daily life from another point of view. The book is well written and deserves to be in a synagogue or academic library. It will make you think about God in new ways. (Ajl Newsletter)
