One of the most respected religious thinkers of our time makes an impassioned plea for the return of religion to its true purpose-- as a partnership with God in the work of ethical and moral living. What are our duties to others, to society, and to humanity? How do we live a meaningful life in an age of global uncertainty and instability? In To Heal a Fractured World, Rabbi Jonathan Sacks offers answers to these questions by looking at the ethics of responsibility. In his signature plainspoken, accessible style, Rabbi Sacks shares with us traditional interpretations of the Bible, Jewish law, and theology, as well as the works of philosophers and ethicists from other cultures, to examine what constitutes morality and moral behavior. " We are here to make a difference, " he writes, " a day at a time, an act at a time, for as long as it takes to make the world a place of justice and compassion." He argues that in today's religious and political climate, it is more important than ever to return to the essential understanding that " it is by our deeds that we express our faith and make it real in the lives of others and the world." To Heal a Fractured World-- inspirational and instructive, timely and timeless-- will resonate with people of all faiths. "From the Hardcover edition."

Rabbi Lord Sacks, former Chief Rabbi of the United Hebrew Congregations of the UK & Commonwealth, is admired by non-Jews as well as Jews, by secular as well as religious thinkers, and is equally at home in the university and the yeshiva. Lord Sacks read Philosophy at Cambridge before pursuing postgraduate studies at New College, Oxford and King's College, London.The Chief Rabbi is a highly respected writer and broadcaster, with a regular column in The Times and frequent appearances on Radio 4's Thought for the Day. He is the author of twenty books, including The Great Partnership, The Dignity of Difference and Future Tense.
