This book is a collection of short, and often unusual, observations about the complexities of human existence and religious meaning. Rabbi Cardozo masterfully weaves together the intriguing perspectives of renowned Western and religious thinkers spanning the ages as he deals with subjects that range from "Jewish Identity, Jewish Leadership and Rebellion" and "The Therapy of Sport" to "Religious Stringencies: Good or Bad?" The Ba'al Shem Tov, Rav Avraham Yitschak Kook, Emanuel Kant and Charles Darwin are just some of the legendary figures who appear in this eclectic work. Each "Thought" contains stimulating and eye-opening concepts that will plant seeds of curiosity in the minds of readers.
