Sacred Attunement: A Jewish Theology

Sacred Attunement is Michael Fishbane's attempt to renew Jewish theology for our time, in the larger context of modern and postmodern challenges to theology and theological thought in the broadest sense. Fishbane regrounds theology in this setting and opens up new pathways through nature, art, and the theological dimension as a whole. After introducing his hermeneutical theology, Fishbane focuses on modes of self-cultivation for awakening and sustaining a covenant theology. Finally, he takes up questions of scripture, authority, belief, despair, and obligation as theological topics in their own right. Sacred Attunement is a work of uncommon personal integrity and originality from one of the most distinguished scholars of Judaica in our time.
