Rarely do you find a scholar who continually breaks new ground in his or her publications - Wolfson is an exception. This book not only breaks new ground, but also deals with one of the questions of our age: how can we, in a postmodern world, have a concept of God?
Bringing both modern philosophers and Jewish thinkers to bear on Judaism, Wolfson explores the paradox of transcendence and immanence vis-a-vis idolatry, in light of apophatic theology and the postmodern condition.
This is not a casual read; one actively engages Wolfson in his exploration of these topics via reading, and through that engagement, we learn to think anew, to think more deeply. Thus, I would heartily recommend this book to those interested in theology, philosophy, and/or Jewish thought.
