Product Details


"I have rarely met anyone who combines spirituality, intelligence, wisdom,
and compassion in quite the way Dr. Jonathan Sacks does. He has taught me
so much about the Abrahamic faiths. He is truly a spiritual Master, which
is why I believe he can be called Mahatma, or Great Soul."
–Professor Akbar Ahmed, Ibn Khaldun Chair of Islamic Studies, American University

"Upon receiving this latest volume by Rabbi Sacks, I appreciated again his
well-deserved reputation for marrying high content to elegant style. There
are no pious preachments here, and no self-conscious intellectual
posturings. To Heal a Fractured World is carefully reasoned yet warm,
intellectually engaging, and entirely quotable."
–Dr. Norman Lamm, Chancellor, Yeshiva University
