This book is the sequel to Abraham Joshua Heschel: Prophetic Witness, which traced Heschel's European journey from Hasidism to modernity. Born in Warsaw, Heschel was reared in a devout Jewish community and went on to earn a Ph.D. in philosophy from the University of Berlin. He became a prophetic voice for Christians and Jews during three momentous decades in the United States. In the 1940s he countered the horrors of war and genocide with vivid essays on prayer, faith, and holiness. In the 1950s he became a public intellectual, publishing books of constructive Jewish theology while launching a critique of religious and ethical life. Finally, in the turbulent 1960s, Heschel was a widely publicized activist in civil rights, interfaith dialogue, and opposition to the Vietnam War.
