Praise for "Saving Israel""Daniel Gordis has restarted the whole conversation about the country's direction. His urgent call to action, articulated with erudition, reflection, and fearlessness, could not be more timely or more essential."
--"Jewish Book World""One of Israel's most thoughtful observers."
--Alan Dershowitz"Daniel Gordis's morally powerful "Saving Israel," from a writer whose reflections are consistently as intellectually impressive as they are moving, engages in an acutely necessary argument: that sovereignty has significantly changed the Jewish condition by influencing how we think. Gordis addresses the exigencies of our time with the urgency they overridingly demand, and with the depth of feeling they inspire."
--Cynthia Ozick"An important book. . . . Hopefully, "Saving Israel" will inspire constructive discussion and analysis of core issues that Israelis, Jews everywhere, and the entire West have studiously avoided for far too long."
--Natan SharanskyAttacked by terrorists, threatened by Arab states, and criticized by nearly everyone, Israel is the only country about which there is discussion as to whether it has a right to exist. Yet even its most ardent defenders cannot always articulate why Israel deserves to survive. In "Saving Israel," Daniel Gordis admits that peace has never been farther off, but he also captures the wonder and vitality of this very special country, painting a picture of a nation well worth preserving. He provides a profound and persuasive argument, not just for how the Jewish homeland can survive, but how the enthusiasm so apparent at its founding can be cultivated today and for generations to come.show more
