Better than Wine Love, Poetry, and Prayer in the Thought of Franz Rosenzweig Synopsis

This book offers a hermeneutical reading of Franz Rosenzweig's 1921 masterpiece, The Star of Redemption. In her analysis, Yudit K.

Better than Wine Love, Poetry, and Prayer in the Thought of Franz Rosenzweig Press Reviews

The author of Better Than Wine has chosen love, poetry, and prayer as doors to lead us into Rosenzwieg's 'New Thinking.' These show us how remarkably well Rosenzweig addresses the concerns and interests of contemporary Jewish and Christian theologians. Here is a trustworthy companion volume that will help you into that fascinating and seminal book,The Star of Redemption. * Paul M. van Buren * Franz Rosenzweig deserves this careful and creative study of his thought by Yudit K. Greenberg. By showing his affinities to classical Jewish mysticism, she has made his connection to the Jewish past that much stronger; and by connecting his thought to postmodern and feminist concerns, she has made his voice speak that much more effectively in present discussions of Jewish thought. * David Novak *
