    Fabulous short overview of contemplative meditation in the Jewish tradition For me the closing chapter titled Reflection On Philosophy and Theology was worth the price of the book This piece is a beautiful meditation on avoiding any kind of circumscribed statement of belief as not only limiting but misleading and ultimately damning any formulation that can be given in words will not do, since words can only contain up to 180 degrees of the truth, which itself is 360 degrees The God Truth is at least 360 degrees Ultimately, he counsels to allow oneself to live in the question and use alternate and perhaps even contradictory maps of belief to guide in varied circumstances.
