    Story

    I and Thou is a classic as it deserves to be. Like many classics, it is an unusual book. It is about connecting directly with the God in each being we encounter. It is about how we might share in deep and genuine connections with our fellow humans and how we might find God within the world of human relations.

    At its best, the book succeeds in laying out a new paradigm of spirituality, one that is neither focused on some externalized God, nor the God within, nor the God of unity. For Buber, God can best be sought in each if our relations, in the way we relate from moment to moment.

    It is a beautiful book, imbued with Buber's own unique language. The only problem is that Buber's language is not always easy to understand. Part of the reason for this may lie in the translation; philosophical works in German are notoriously difficult to comprehend. There is also a long tradition of philosophical obscurantism amongst German philosophers of which Buber is sadly a part. But it is a language and phrasing that marches to its own inner rhythms, and it is as unique as its message. Altogether, it is a beautiful book to which one might do yoga or tai-chi or take a walk in the woods.

    Martin Buber is an early-to-mid twentieth century German-Jewish philosopher. He wrote like Heidegger at his best before Heidegger. And he was one of a small handful of Jewish immigrants to Israel, before it was Israel, who advocated for a one-state for Jews and Palestinians to share. This was before the one-state solution was being advocated as an alternative to the two-state solution, which came after the solution was ethnic cleansing. Whereas Heidegger was a Nazi, Buber was a genuine humanitarian, and it shows in his work. Buber was far ahead of his time; hence, it should not surprise us that he wrote such a timeless classic.

    The reader stays out of the way, not interfering with the text, so that it might speak for itself. Altogether, the result is a beautiful experience that can be returned to repeatedly.

    Martin Buber’s I and Thou has long been acclaimed as a classic. Many prominent writers have acknowledged its influence on their work; students of intellectual history consider it a landmark; and the generation born after World War II considers Buber one of its prophets. Buber’s main proposition is that we may address existence in two ways: (1) that of the “I” toward an “It,” toward an object that is separate in itself, which we either use or experience; (2) that of the “I” toward “Thou,” in which we move into existence in a relationship without bounds.

  • The Modern Scholar: The Hebrew Bible

    "Fairly good introductory material"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    Professor Schiffman is clearly extremely knowledgeable about the subject material, and this audiobook is fairly well organized and narrated, but the problem is that Prof. Schiffman is a practising orthodox Jew. So if you're looking for an _objective_ critical analysis about the origins and evolution of the Hebrew Bible, this is probably not your best resource. Nevertheless, the audiobook is very informative and if you don't mind listening to the account of the history of the Hebrew Bible from the orthodox, yet not in-your-face-mythical, Jewish perspective, then this is a good place to start. Just keep in mind that when Prof. Schiffman mentions that the "Bible minimalists" disagree with a particular view of his (or speaks of there being other opinions on the issue that also hold academic weight), it means that Prof. Schiffman is basically presenting this issue in a way that conforms with his faith (so the other opinions in this case are probably more historically realistic).

    1 of 2 helpful votes

    There is no other ancient writing like this. I was there in the story. I was moved by God's love for his people. The clarity of the text is remarkable. I have read many many ancient religious texts but none of them hold a candle to the Tanakh. God's relationship with mankind is clear.

That its deceptively simple sentences and surface appearance hide from contemporary readers a purposeful and intricate structure designed to let its depth and detail and implication resonate with the readers and listeners of its own time?.
