God Was in This Place & I, I Did Not Know - 25th Anniversary Edition

Finding Self, Spirituality and Ultimate Meaning
  • By Rabbi Lawrence Kushner
Product Description

"A profound exploration of the necessity of paying attention to God's presence."
"Library Journal"

In a daring blend of scholarship and imagination, psychology and history, Lawrence Kushner gathers an inspiring range of interpretations of Genesis 28:16 given by sages, from Shmuel bar Nachmani in third-century Palestine to Hannah Rachel Werbermacher of Ludomir who lived in Poland two hundred years ago. Through a fascinating new literary genre and Kushner’s creative reconstruction of the teachers’ lives and times, we enter the study halls and sit at the feet of these spiritual masters to learn what each discovered about God’s Self and ourselves as they ascend and descend Jacob’s ladder.

In this illuminating journey?celebrated in this special 25th anniversary edition with a new preface by the author?our spiritual guides ask and answer the fundamental questions of human experience: Who am I? Who is God? What is God’s role in history? What is the nature of evil? How should I relate to God and other people? Could the universe really have a self?
