The Rabbinic Mind Reviews
I consider this a classic of value to anyone interested inJudaism. For me, the book explained why the seemingly odd argumentsand reasoning of Rabbis far away and long ago are still relevant tomodern thought and practice. Instead of trying to shoehorn therabbinic mind into modern logical channels, the book shows the humaneand subtle psychology they embodied, and the goals they were trying toachieve among their people. For instance, I can know accept thePassover Haggadah's famous vituperation against the "wicked child" asa reflection of the respect the ancient Rabbis had (and the "wickedchild" lacks) for individual experience. Anyone can appreciatereligion and life as a process rather than a set of rules can benefitfrom this book.
