A classic of modern Jewish theology that is essential for all faiths. Heschel believed that no religious group had a monolopy on religious truth and this is his great statement on the nature of religious faith. Discussing how man seeks God's presence, Heschel examines how the Jews are a chosen people and the idea of the prophet. In these ideas Heschel discovers the true relationship between God and His people, and defines how religious thought becomes faith.
