9780853032311: Helping With Inquiries: An Autobiography

This autobiography of one of the world's leading Jewish religious thinkers and teachers, and the central participant in the dramatic 'Jacobs affair', begins with his early boyhood in a poor district of Manchester. The story covers his student life at Gateshead and London University, his trips overseas and the showbiz world of Hollywood - all of which enhances the book's value as a historical source. For the first time, he provides an extended personal account of the 'Jacobs affair' of the 1960s, the bitter controversy over his theological writings which led to his being ostracised by many representatives of the Orthodox tradition from which he sprang.
