    “If my mind were not already God’s unstretchable Mind, I’d say the book is a mind-stretcher. And if the book were not already God, beyond even delight, I’d say the book is a delight.”—Rabbi Arthur Waskow, author of Godwrestling: Round 2 “Compelling jolts us from an ego-centered illusion of separateness. 'The Coming of the Cosmic Christ' by Matthew Fox: LIBRARY. books. author of The Universe Is a Green Dragon This passionate book brings harvest and hope-- Joanna R. Macy, Reconstructionsist Rabbinical College, author of Seasons of Our Joy, and Godwrestling.

    A sincere but overly idiosyncratic guide for those who are disenchanted with more traditional Judaism. Waskow, author of 12 books (most recently Becoming Brothers, , with brother Howard), continues his career-long ``Godwrestling'' in this latest attempt to remake Judaism. The rabbi winnows through millennia of biblical and rabbinical teachings to find a few grains in the mountains of chaff. I will be weaving some ideas from these three books together with some ideas developed in my own books, Godwrestling () and Godwrestling -Round 2 (). The three books are: Ishmael, by Daniel Quinn, a widely read "novel" made up of dialogue between a human and a gorilla about the present eco-disaster that the earth and human earthlings.

    This richly imagined novel, set in Hawai'i more than a century ago, is an extraordinary epic of a little-known time and placeand a deeply moving testament to the resiliency of the human spirit. Godwrestling in the Night. Theology. Theodicy. Jew and Christian together confront the ashes of the night. Scriptural din torah infuses their dialogical Godwrestling on sacred texts, which embraces doctrinal, ethical, religious, and social concerns. I submit that the message of Auschwitz for the Jew and Christian is not survival alone.
