“This is one of the most important books I have read about contemporary faith and particularly about Judaism. It is uncompromising and honest and brilliant and true. It will be a painful revelation to many, but also, for all of us, a burst of badly needed intellectual and spiritual oxygen and light.”—Naomi Wolf

Nothing Sacred is provocative, exquisitely challenging, fearless, and brilliant. It is chock-full with ideas and insights that will change the way people look at their Judaism. It is, at the same time, a penetrating look, done with compassion, at what is wrong with contemporary Jewish life and an inspiring exploration of what is right about Judaism for the world.”—Rabbi Irwin Kula, president, CLAL, The National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership

“I read Nothing Sacred reluctantly, from a stance of deep skepticism, and learned to my delight and enlightenment that this is truly a Jewish approach. Rushkoff uses millennia of Jewish teachings to reveal that God is indeed to be questioned, not obeyed, created, not worshiped, continually revised, reconsidered, and debated—not graven in stone. I truly believe this book might end up as one of the most important works of Jewish literature, worthy of comparison with Maimonides and Buber. Many will be outraged and even furious at Rushkoff for daring to revise the Jewish tradition of self-questioning. I thank him for helping me feel like a Jew again.” —Howard Rheingold, author of Smart Mobs

“This is an extraordinary book. It is both analytical and passionate, rational and imbued by faith, calling on its readers to lend their minds, their hearts, and their souls to the construction of a Judaism that works for our times.”—Ruth Messinger
