Praise

“Reading the letters of Martin Buber us like looking through a clear window into his soul and entering with him into an I—Thou relationship. What a gift this volume is.”
—Chaim Potok
 
“This is a book of tremendous significance not only for anyone interested in modern religious and social thought but for anyone with genuine curiosity about one of the great embodiments of the human spirit.”
—Harvey Cox
 
“The letters of Martin Buber are crucial documents not only of Jewish but German intellectual history as well. They are indispensible for anyone concerned with the humanistic side of Zionism. . . . They have great contemporary relevance.”
—George L. Mosse, Professor Emeritus, University of Wisconsin
 
“These selected letters serve as an entry into the interpersonal world of the great Jewish philosopher. In elaborating on his relations with contemporary literary intellectuals, religious thinkers, and Zionist leaders, they reveal the issues that mattered to him and to his remarkable circle of acquaintances.”
—Michael A. Meyer, Hebrew Union College—Jewish Institute of Religion
 
“A magnificent selection of letters by a great correspondent. It shos Buber’s place at the very corner of Jewish and German intellectual life for over half a century.”
—Arthur Greene, President, Reconstructionist Rabbinical College
 
The Letters of Martin Buber cover the better part of this century . . . and may well be its deepest spiritual record. No editor could have produced the present selection with as great care and fidelity as the late Nahum N. Glatzer [and his successor] Paul Mendes-Flohr.”
—Emil L. Fackenheim
