More than any previous generation, we have been tempted to imagine that the individual's needs are the sole source of meaning. Here Rabbi Sacks argues that this pre-occupation with self is a mistake and that ethics are concerned with the life we live together. Rabbi Sacks shows a profound engagement with the human condition today, talking with as much authority about Sigmund Freud or Karl Marx as he does about the Bible. This is a clarion call to the outside world to come to its senses. 'There is much of great wisdom here, for readers of all faiths and none.' Bishop of Thetford'A book for our time. Sacks writes with a quiet passion that is accessible to religionist and secularist alike... a desperately needed transfusion of hope.' Catholic Herald
