Being an anthology, the book is not constrained by single rigid doctrine or dogma, or even by the need for consistency. Authors contributing to this volume come from very different backgrounds and espouse very different perspectives on Judaism. I found it very appealing it to me personally that many of the contributors clearly came from academic background, and approached difficult questions from a rational perspective. Of course there are no magic ideas or solutions, but it was very encouraging to learn how intelligent people deeply immersed in religion struggle to find answers to some of the most difficult problems in modern Judaism.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone trying to find place of Judaism in modern Western life.
