The new Jewish spirituality lies somewhere between God’s elusive presence in our world and our search for authentic language to describe it.
Rabbi Arthur Green leads us on a journey of discovery to seek God, the world, and ourselves. One of the most influential Jewish thinkers of our time, Green has created a roadmap of meaning for our lives in the light of Jewish mysticism, using the Hebrew letters that make up the divine name:

Yod—Reality at the beginning. God as the oneness of being at the outset, before it unfolds into our universe. Heh—Creation and God’s presence in the world. A renewed faith in God as Creator has powerful implications for us today. Vav—Revelation, the central faith claim of Judaism and the claim it makes on our lives. Heh—Redemption and our return to God through the life of Torah and by participating in the ongoing repair of the world.

A personal and honest framework of understanding for the seeker, this revised and updated edition of a classic sheds new light on our search for the divine presence in our everyday lives.
