Poor God. Rarely gets thanked for any of the good things in the world, but always gets blamed when something goes wrong…

In an era that seems in so many ways to have lost its sense of direction and purpose, a new understanding of God is required. By exploring the origins and emergence of Judaism, this book offers suggestions as to where human beings lost their early connection with the Divine and how we might rediscover it – and bring more gentleness and kindness into the world if we do.

A book that begins with an overview of the development of Judaism from a Progressive perspective concludes with a vision of a world shaped by ‘Rigorous Kindness’ – a return to the human values of care and compassion that are so urgently needed and painfully absent from our twenty-first century.
