I'm not Jewish, but I like the way Jonathan Sacks sees the world. I also think the Bible is our most important book. So to read his insights into the character of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Joseph is very intellectually satisfying. He's not at all academic, he just explains what the Jewish interpretations are.
The essays are short which means it's easy to pick up and put down. I find his ideas motivate me to go back to the texts.
