Rabbi Sacks' well-deserved reputation as a writer and broadcaster in the UK has followed him to North America with the success of The Dignity of Difference. His clear, calm voice brings hope and encouragement to all of us struggling to come to terms with modern, turbulent times.

In the UK, that calm voice is frequently heard on the country's most popular morning BBC radio news show. He regular presents a "Thought for the Day" in which he addresses a current issue with characteristic brevity and clarity.

Here, the Chief Rabbi has selected his favorite "Thoughts for the Day" for publication. The result is a book that will appeal to a very wide audience ― people with religious belief and those with little or none.

About the Author:

Sir Jonathan Sacks is Chief Rabbi of the United Hebrew Congregations of Britain and the Commonwealth. He is the author of numerous books, including Celebrating Life, From Optimism to Hope, The Persistence of Faith and The Dignity of Difference, for which he won a Grawemeyer Award in Religion.

Review:

"[T]he chief rabbi is at his most lucid in these broadcast addresses... These meditations have justifiably earned Sacks an important place in our national consciousness. Perhaps more importantly, they are themselves an invaluable help to becoming 'a world that honours life and treasures peace.'"

"The genius of this collection is to be found not least in the diversity of the subjects covered ... These meditations have justifiably earned Sacks an important place in our national consciousness." The Tablet
