Product Description

Review

[T]he chief rabbi is at his most lucid in these broadcast addresses... These meditations have justifiably earned Sacks an important place in our national consciousness. Perhaps more importantly, they are themselves an invaluable help to becoming 'a world that honours life and treasures peace.'"",""The genius of this collection is to be found not least in the diversity of the subjects covered ... These meditations have justifiably earned Sacks an important place in our national consciousness."" --The Tablet

I very much appreciate everything, Rabbi Sir Jonathan Sacks tells or writes. For a Jew, but not only for him, it is always a pleasure, to listen to Rabbi Sacks or to read something, he wrote. But not only for Jews, but for everone who believes in God.
This little book "FROM OPTIMISM TO HOPE" is especially written for people who like to read something spiritual, but do not have much time. He/she will find for nearly every day a little more than a page with uplifting thoughts on different subjects. Sometimes I read it even in bed. Who does not appreciate a little encouragement at any time of the day.

5.0 out of 5 stars 'Thought for the Day' Wisdom 22 Nov. 2004
By Shalom Freedman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Rabbi Sachs the Chief Rabbi of Great Britain has collected here talks he has given from 1991 to 2004 on BBC's Radio Four 'Thought for the Day' program. I have not heard these talks, but Rabbi Sachs is one of the most remarkable speakers I have ever heard and I am sure that they are very powerful radio. They read well and convey basic messages of optimism, and faith in life. Rabbi Sachs almost always connects the world problem he discusses with some piece of wisdom from the Jewish tradition and does this in a most effective way. While it might be possible to fault him for being a bit superficial in dealing with certain problems he generally is sensible and good- willed.

I enjoyed reading these small essays because too they reflect Rabbi Sachs deep knowledge of and committment to the Jewish tradition. I also believe in his general approach of friendliness and openness to the non- Jewish world.

These talks make an excellent ' light read' and I recommend them highly.
5.0 out of 5 stars Thoughts from Rabbi Sachs 9 May 2009
By F. M. Cohen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As usual, Rabbi Sachs writes in a style that all can appreciate. His current book is a collection of short talks given on a regular basis to be broadcast by the BBC, about 2 minutes long.
His insight, knowledge of history, philosphy and Jewish history make this book all can appreciate in this modern world.
Highly Recommended.
