Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I had a Christian upbringing, but I've always been attracted to self-help literature. Reading books by Jonathan Sacks makes me admire the way Judaism isn't just a faith, it's a community. They don't just tell the stories, they think hard about how it's best to live your life and deal with the problems every generation has to face.

The line 'that what we want to do meets what needs to be done, that is where God wants us to be' is all the career guidance you need, but I've never heard the Anglican church be so bold as to offer career advice. In Judaism, it's not acceptable to embarrass another person in public. That's the sort of imperative we need to hear articulated when they put out another series of Big Brother or The Weakest Link.

The content is high-brow, but despite the fact that Sacks has an academic background, he's never hard to follow. The book is overflowing with social commentary and Biblical insight.

I was interested to read about how the Chief Rabbi was inspired by Rabbi Menahem Mendel Schneersohn. I've been reading up about him.

I'm now on my next book by the same author.

I'm not affiliated to any religion, but I believe in living as an example in ethics,
so I have enjoyed reading "To heal a fractured world".
The book is well written, with many examples from the Bible, history and modern life.
Sometimes I've read again the same chapter, in order to understand better.
It can speak to any religious as well as secular people of good will, therefore I recommend it.
