Thinking about God: Jewish Views

 

Rabbi Gerson leads us as we consider the central questions and dilemmas of Jewish theology. Specifically, this course entails a close reading of Thinking about God: Jewish Views, edited and with commentary by Rabbi Kari H. Tuling and recently published by The Jewish Publication Society. Unlike many books on Jewish theology which are organized by respective thinkers over time, this book is organized topically. The book has been described as follows:

"Who—or what—is God? Is God like a person? Does God have a gender? Does God have a special relationship with the Jewish people? Does God intervene in our lives? Is God good—and, if yes, why does evil persist in the world? In investigating how Jewish thinkers have approached these and other questions, Rabbi Kari H. Tuling elucidates many compelling—and contrasting—ways of thinking about God in Jewish tradition.

A highly accessible resource for introductory students, Thinking about God also makes important yet challenging theological texts understandable. By breaking down each selected text into its core components, Tuling helps the reader absorb it both on its own terms and in the context of essential theological questions of the ages. Readers of all backgrounds will discover new ways to contemplate God. "
