Re-reading Heschel on the Commandments

By Arnold Eisen

Johns Hopkins University Press, February 1989

Abraham Heschel has not fared well among students or fellow-practitioners of contemporary Jewish theology. The present essay offers an exposition and analysis of Heschel's many writings on the authority and purpose of the mitzvot. It also presents an attempt to re-orient thinking about Heschel's thought as a whole, focusing on works and themes which to date have rarely come into critical thought.
