Routledge, 2021 - paperback edition, 2023
Thanks so much for this post (and the illustrations provide a nice touch). I look forward to reading the book!
It's likely that you touch on this issue in the book, but I'm just curious what you think of the oft-contrasted approaches of Soloveitchik and Heschel vis-à-vis interfaith dialogue. Here's the bumper sticker version of Heschel's perspective (relying on his so-called "depth theology") as I understand it: while Jews and Christians cannot meaningfully meet on the cognitive level of contested doctrines (like the trinity or incarnation), they can meaningfully meet on the in some sense more fundamental level of the phenomenology of encountering the Ineffable. What I'm wondering specifically is why you think this approach wasn't congenial to Soloveitchik. It seems like a genuinely religious place of potential meeting (rather than just the "secular" sphere of meeting that he permitted), but doesn't seem to threaten assimilation or anything like that. Thanks!
Interesting spin on worldbuilding, I've add this as an example to my to-do pile
This book looks amazing! Its being added to my long term wish list - hopefully when I finish college I'll be able to afford it.
