Named the #1 Pulpit Rabbi in America (as reported in Newsweek), David J. Wolpe is the rabbi of Sinai Temple in Los Angeles and a teacher of modern Jewish religious thought at UCLA. Rabbi Wolpe writes for many publications, including The Jewish Week, Jerusalem Post, Los Angeles Times, and Beliefnet.com. He has appeared as a commentator on CNN and CBS This Morning and has been featured on the History Channel's Mysteries of the Bible. He is the author of six previous books, including the national bestseller Making Loss Matter: Creating Meaning in Difficult Times.From Booklist:
Rabbi Wolpe, who has already established himself as a fine religious thinker in his previous two books, The Healer of Shattered Hearts (1990) and In Speech and in Silence (1992), writes provocatively once more, this time about children and God. Although the context is Jewish, there is much here for any parent who has wondered how to treat a subject that has almost as many pitfalls as the topic of sex. Wolpe knows how tough it is to talk about religion, especially for parents who have had little or no formal religious training themselves. His approach involves listening, questioning, mixing stories and humor. He even offers potential discussion questions at the end of each chapter, although the questions are really as much for the parent to think about as the child. And the questions are the important thing, says Wolpe. Even though families may not come up with definitive answers about life, death, joy, sorrow, and God, posing the queries is the first step on a fascinating journey that parents and children will want to share.
