The Sabbath

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Elegant, passionate, and filled with the love of God's creation, Abraham Joshua Heschel's The Sabbath has been hailed as a classic of Jewish spirituality ever since its original publication--and has been read by thousands of people seeking meaning in modern life. In this brief yet profound meditation on the meaning of the Seventh Day, Heschel, one of the most widely respected religious leaders of the twentieth century, introduced the influential idea of an 'architecture of holiness" that appears not in space but in time. Judaism, he argues, is a religion of time: it finds meaning not in space and the materials things that fill it but in time and the eternity that imbues it, so that 'the Sabbaths are our greatcatherdrals.'

Customer Reviews

Eternity speaks a day

Heschel’s meditation on Sabbath and time is thought provoking, nourishing, and a much needed cure for the spiritual malaise of our current world. Read it and be amazed.

What is Holy
