5.0 von 5 Sternen A most informative book on Shabbat., 3. November 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Sabbath (Taschenbuch)
I read this book some time ago, and was fascinated by the depth of his understanding of the Sabbath. I am a convert to Judaism, and this book was invaluable to me; especially since I was searching for a better understanding of Sabbath rest. I treasure this book because I think just one reading of it is not enough. One can reread the book and still find new (or preiously overlooked) truths.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Beautiful, 17. Oktober 1999
Von 
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Sabbath (Taschenbuch)
Quite simply, this is one of the most beautiful, inspiring books I have ever read. Abraham Joshua Heschel, in a very short, accessible, clear manner, spells out the meaning of the Sabbath. I have been Jewish all my life, but realize now that I never truly understood Sabbath. The lessons in this book, which takes very little time to read, come back to me now every Friday night when I sit down with my family to say Shabbat prayers. It also has changed my approach to life the rest of the week, as Mr. Heschel explains the blessing of work and rest, and the place for each in life. Followers of other religions (certainly Christians) who have a day of rest will appreciate and benefit from the message of this book as much as Jewish individuals.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The relavance of Sabbath in terms of time/space/relativity, 7. Januar 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Sabbath (Gebundene Ausgabe)
In an era when the fourth commandment seems arcane, Heschel creates an acute sense of urgency towards our awareness of the Sabbath...its preciousness, its relavance. For we must choose: are we to be workaholic slaves to the Pharaoh of material aquisition, or serve precious moments of holiness, which the Sabbath provides? In a society that values things more than moments of time, Heschel shows us how the Sabbath points us to a value system in which time, when made holy, puts space/things/people in their proper perspective. Have we become deluded that time-saving devices(cars, microwaves, telephones, computers) will create new moments of time for us? The opposite has proved true. As Heschel says, "The more we think the more we realize:we cannot conquer time through space. We can only master time in time." And so he shows us that God's gift to us is not arcane, but critically important today. As the Sabbath is the central Jewish holiday, and the first of all that God created as 'holy', we take a new view of Judaisim- its main holy sites are architectural masterpieces made from time, holy days set in the cycle of a week, a season, a year. And these lessons are for every religion, for our understanding of the value of time needs to be universal, or we fall into a materialism in which there is no room for religion or spirituality. There are so many teachings from Heschel in each paragraph and his language constantly brushes the edges of poetry. "The higher goal of spiritual living is not to amass a wealth of information, but to face sacred moments. In a religious experience, for example, it is not a thing that imposes itself on man but a spiritual presence. What is retained in the soul is the moment of insight rather than the place where the act came to pass. A moment of insight is a fortune, transporting us beyond the confines of measured time. Spiritual life begins to decay when we fail to sense the grandeur of what is eternal in time" Abraham Heschel, THE SABBATH.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Central to my understanding of Judaism, 31. August 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Sabbath (Taschenbuch)
Heschel's "The Sabbath" was perhaps the singular most important work in helping me understand my own relationship to a weekly sabbath/shabbat. It is a masterfully written (and, unlike other Heschel books, short!) description of what it means to create a "cathedral in time" each week. Heschel's central insight that Judaism is a "religion of time and not of space" -- I'm quoting from memory so don't harass me if I got it wrong -- is brilliant and important. Highly recommended for Jews and other spiritual seekers.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The book transcends the typical fare related to the Sabbath., 17. März 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Sabbath (Taschenbuch)
Rabbi Heschel's book transcends the debate over which day is Shabbat, and clearly dilineates what the Sabbath is and how man is to relate to his God by it. The book will revolutionize one's concept of God, Creation (space) and time. The first thing the Creator called "holy" was time: 24 hours of it every week. Heschel's work is a must read for all who would to have a higher understanding of the Lord and how he operates in His creation.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A thoughtful commentary on a day of rest, 19. März 1998
Von 
David Graham (Shell, Ecuador) - Alle meine Rezensionen ansehen

Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Sabbath (Taschenbuch)
I give this fine, slim volume high marks for readability and fine insight. Heschel's comments are written for the lay reader and provide ample food for thought. Among other things, Heschel reminds his readers that the higher goal of spiritual living is not to amass a wealth of information but to face sacred moments. This is a good piece of tempering advice for those of us involved in scholarly pursuits.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Essential Philosphic Underpinnings of the Sabbath, 27. September 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Sabbath (Taschenbuch)
Rabbi Heschel begins by clearly explaining the basis of Shabbat - the island in time. Contrasting time and material posession (space), he shows the inherent joy in this most important Jewish holiday of all. It is not a Sabbath how-to book. Rather, it is for thoughful readers seeking the spiritual element in the day of rest. To them, Heschel's The Sabbath is truly an Oneg Shabbat. A must read.

5.0 von 5 Sternen SHORT, WELL-WRITTEN AND MEANINGFUL, 3. Mai 1999
Von 
Sylvan G. Feldstein (New York, New York United States) - Alle meine Rezensionen ansehen
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Sabbath (Taschenbuch)
This book, focusing on the celebration of the Seventh Day, helps bring a Jewish person who may have wandered back to an appreciation of Jewish practice and belief. The notes add a scholarly touch and the delightful art work adds to the beauty of the book.
