The traditions of Jewish wisdom and religion hold answers to life??'s deepest questions.& nbsp; In this, his first book, Rabbi Kula mines those traditions to offer pragmatic insights into how to live hopefully and richly with the uncertainty, complexity, and fear that come with 21st century life.& nbsp; A new way of thinking about religion and spirituality that is neither New Age nor fundamentalist, Yearnings embraces the contradictions of modern experience???what Rabbi Kula calls the ???sacred messiness of life??????and explores the desire to reconcile the conflict between the unscripted course of our lives and our desire for certainty.& nbsp; Yearnings takes the reader on an excursion into the depths of ancient Jewish tradition, drawing parallels between today??'s experiences and the ancient stories of the Bible.& nbsp; A hopeful book for troubled times.
