Faith in the Future addresses some of the major themes of our time: the fragmentation of our common culture, the breakdown of family and community life, the lack of moral direction, and the waning of religious belief. How, Sacks asks, can we construct a humane social order that honors human dignity and difference, one in which we can be both true to ourselves and a blessing to others? In the confusing state of postindustrial societies in the post-Cold War situation, can we give those who come after us a coherent map of hope? In treating such questions, Faith in the Future is structured in four parts. In the first, "The Moral Covenant, " Sacks touches on the broadest of issues: morality, the family, and the importance of communities in the life of society. In the second, "Living Together, " he asks how we can co-exist while remaining faithful to our distinctive identities and traditions. In the third, "Jewish Ethics and Spirituality, " he sketches some of Judaism's leading themes. "There is such a thing, " says, as an ecology of hope, and it lies in restoring to our culture a sense of family, community, and religious faith.
