Judaism Reclaimed

Philosophy and Theology in the Torah

Discussions in this unique work include:

  • How is our understanding of Torah guided by philosophy?
  • Can Jewish tradition combat Bible criticism?
  • Why does God permit evil?
  • Did Rabbi Akiva reject the Torah’s death penalty?
  • Rabbinic law vs. the spirit of halachah
  • Rambam’s Judaism and its relevance in a post-Aristotelian world

In a scholarly though highly readable manner, Judaism Reclaimed examines a range of theological and philosophical discussions emerging from the Torah. Inspired by the approaches of Rambam, Rabbi Samson Raphael Hirsch, and other leading Jewish thinkers, the author analyzes both narrative and halachic areas of the Torah’s teachings. Drawing on a wide range of sources, he examines a number of challenges posed to Orthodox Judaism from the halls of academia and addresses them from the perspective of Jewish tradition.
