The essence of Judaism by Leo Baeck( Book )

17 editions published between 1936 and 1978 in English and held by 1,275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This classic of Jewish religious thought began as a critical essay vigorously challenging Adolf Harnack's "Essence of Christianity". It grew into a comprehensive examination of Jewish religion and an invaluable key to understanding the background of Christianity and Islam. Jewish tradition permits conflicting schools of thought to exist side by side, as well as a many-sided interplay of ceremonial law, philosophy, theology and mysticism. It has never been greatly concerned with formulating dogmas. It is therefore a major achievement to have succeeded in defining its essential ideas and doctrines. This presentation is based upon Biblical, talmudic and later rabbinical sources. It preserves the variety and fullness of these classical originals; it avoids dogmatism; yet to Judaism, with all its diversity, it has given a definitive formulation. [Back cover]
