Through translation and commentary, this book presents the final visionary statements of the German-Jewish philosopher Franz Rosenzweig.

This is the first publication in English of Franz Rosenzweig's 1927 translation of and commentaries on ninety-two poems and hymns of the greatest medieval "singer of Zion," Yehuda Halevi (born circa 1080). Franz Rosenzweig (1886-1929) is widely recognized as one of the greatest Jewish philosophers of the modern period and his Star of Redemption is considered one of the most important twentieth-century contributions to Jewish--and Christian--theology.

Rosenzweig's original and brilliant commentaries open a window into the final developments of his own thought: his debates with Protestant theology, his reservations regarding modern science and culture, and his progressive appreciation for the wisdom of the Jewish tradition. They are a testament not only to the profound vision of Judaism embedded in the poetry of Yehuda Halevi, but to the ever vibrant and deepening sagacity of Franz Rosenzweig himself.

"The translation into English is fluid and lively, and it will provide easy access to a rather difficult poet. Those who read Halevi in the original Hebrew may not be offered such a joyful opportunity. The commentaries are concise and to the point, and they provide sources and historical information that add substance to the text. To read Halevi through Rosenzweig's lenses is a rare double treat for the contemporary Jewish intellectual in search of meaningful materials on God, Zion, Soul, etc." -- Esther Fuchs, author of Israeli Mythogynies: Women in Contemporary Hebrew Fiction
