A Touch of the Sacred: A Theologian's Informal Guide to Jewish Belief
Powerful, soul-strengthening musings from the leading theologian of liberal Judaism.
“Too often, books on religion are written either primarily for the head or for the heart—as if thinking people don’t also feel intuitively, and spiritual types never think much at all. Bosh!

For the first time, Dr. Eugene Borowitz, the “dean” of liberal Jewish theologians, opens his heart as well as his mind as he talks about the mix of faith and doubt, of knowing and not-knowing—the elements of Jewish belief—in an easily accessible style.

- Doing Holy Deeds
- Creating Sacred Community
- Reading Sacred Texts
- Thinking about Holiness
- Learning from Holy Thinkers
- and much, much more…
