              Eight Questions of Faith: Biblical Challenges That Guide and Ground Our Lives (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Eight Questions of Faith is a spiritual exploration of some of life's biggest questions-questions that have been asked by prophets and kings, mystics and sinners, and that continue to be asked by every one of us today. Niles Elliot Goldstein uses eight questions found in the Bibl...e to explore the human journey from cradle to grave, confronting such important existential experiences and themes as mortality, responsibility, forbidden knowledge, sin, and the afterlife. By interweaving texts from the Bible, commentaries, philosophy, psychology, and literature with his own experiences, Goldstein also meditates on midlife. This book will appeal to believers and nonbelievers alike and is aimed at anyone who has ever faced a challenge or wondered what life is all about.

              Lessons we learn from Jonah The book of Jonah stands unique among the biblical books of theprophets because it is almost entirely narrative. And in contrast to allthe other prophets, who are portrayed as admirable individuals whobravely speak God's word, Jonah stands out as flawe...d, fleeing fromGod. We are drawn to Jonah because God gives him an opportunityto redeem himself, and his experience inspires us to find our ownsecond chances-and our own paths to meaningful growth.Jonah and the Meaning of Our Lives draws on commentaries of Rashi,Ibn Ezra, Kimchi, Abarbanel, and the Malbim as well as contemporaryculture and personal experiences to reveal the hidden meanings ofthis perplexing biblical story. In so doing, it explores many of thelarger questions and topics we face, including human nature, ourrelationship with God, and how we understand ourselves and leadour lives. Rabbi Steven Bob's verse-by-verse commentary intimatelyconnects the ancient wisdom of the text with the reality of our ownlives, providing us with inspiration and guidance.
