View all copies of this ISBN edition:

You've been searching for meaning, yet you are coming up empty-handed. Much of the religious dogmas you have encountered seem like mere clichés. Are they true? Do they have any meaning for your life? Your questions go unanswered. Even if you are not asking and searching, can you really say that you understand the depths of your faith? Don't worry: there are answers to your asked and not-yet-asked questions. The last prophets knew that with the end of prophecy the world would be left without the answers they would so desperately need, and so they composed a special mystical text in which all the answers for all time would be embedded. This text is Adon Olam. What is Adon Olam? It is a song, a prayer that religious Jews have said every day for millennia. Believe it or not, it is packed with everything you want to know:
Why did God create the world?
How did physicality come about?
Why would the Infinite God need or want anything?
How can the finite person hope to connect to the Infinite?
Why should we and our actions matter to God?
Why is there so much evil and hardship?
What great purpose is gained by enduring pains and confusions?
Is there any core difference between all the faiths that claim to be monotheistic?
Why would God care about me - my actions and thoughts, my troubles and sorrows?
What about afterlife? What is its true nature? Adon Olam has the answers to all these questions, and more.
