The Glory of Israel:The Theology and Provenience of the Isaiah Targum Bruce D. Chilton
The Holy One of Israel is a philosophical exploration of that remarkable and distinctively Jewish idea: that God is everywhere, yet not in space. Drawing on biblical, rabbinic, and philosophic sources, not as fonts of authority but as touchstones of authenticity, Lenn E. Goodman argues that divine immanence and transcendence are inseparable, a thought captured in Isaiah´s epiphany, Holy, holy, holy. The Lord of hosts. The fill of all the earth is His glory.
The gripping sequel to Pulitzer Prize-winner Herman Wouk’s stunning historical novel The Hope...The Glory plunges immediately into the violence and upheaval of the Six-Day War of 1967 - and continues the dramatic story of Israel’s struggle for survival. A sprawling, action-packed novel, Wouk takes listeners through the terrors of the Yom Kippur War, the famous Entebbe rescue, and the airstrikes on Saddam Hussein’s nuclear reactor - ending with the final hope for peace. Illuminating the inner lives of real Israeli leaders - including David Ben-Gurion, Golda Meir, Moshe Dayan, and Ariel Sharon - with both insight and compassion, Wouk tells the story of Israel’s struggle to exist with an authoritative, gripping style that demonstrates not only the broad significance of this time in history, but also its personal impact on those who lived through it.
