Examines his concern with leap of action vs leap of faith. The central thoughts of this text revolve around fifteen areas, including such concepts as Heschels approach to freedom, peace, racism, justice, prayer, brotherhood, faith, education, man, Israel, the sabbath, the prophets, Mitzvah, philosophy and the Bible. Prime sources for these ideas are found in Heschels major works: God in Search of Man, Man is Not Alone, and The Prophets, as well as in his other publications. Includes photographs.
