The Jewish People in its very being constitutes a living protest against a world of hatred, violence and war. Radical Then, Radical Now is a powerful testimony to the amazing resilience of the Jewish people who have, through their endurance of four thousand years of persecution and exile, earned a unique place in history. Without land or power, they created an identity for themselves through their shared dreams of freedom, justice, dignity and human rights. Yet far more than Jewish history is contained within the pages of this book. Jonathan Sacks reminds us all of the legacy of those dreams and of our responsibility to our fellow man. He challenges us to build a better world. 'Of all the questions of life, the two most penetrating are' Who Am? Who Are We? Rabbi Sacks answers beautifully. On matters of faith he is one of my favourite writers'. Michael Novak, Scholar at The American Enterprise Institute.
