"This book explores three schools of fascinating, talented, and gifted scholars whose philosophies assimilated the Jewish and secular cultures of their respective homelands: they include halakhists from Rabbi Ettlinger to Rabbi Eliezer Berkowitz; Jewish philosophers from Isaac Bernays to Yeshayau Leibowitz; and biblical commentators such as Samuel David Luzzatto and Rabbi Umberto Cassuto. Running like a thread through their philosophies is the attempt to reconcile the Jewish belief in revelation with Western culture, Western philosophy, and the conclusions of scientific research. Among these attempts is Luzzatto's dual truth approach.

English Text: preface, introduction, I. The Framework; II. Text and Transmission; III. How Language Evolves; IV. Results and Discussion; V. Conclusion. The 146 Plates of Sura Isra'; The Arabic Text. "This study gathers Qur'anic manuscripts spanning the fifteen centuries of Islam, then "peels" off the text word-by-word and sets it all in a way that is easily graspable yet visually unique. The focus here is not to champion or refute an idea through an essay, or preaching, or speculating, or confounding, or even by reference to bygone works and their authors theories and thoughts. The aim is to collect Qur'anic manuscripts of established pedigrees and, using Surah 17 as a case study, to set the reality of the written words of the Qur'an plainly before all.

"The reconstruction of the English Church was the final step in the transformation of the pre-reformation Church into the present Establishment. Like all great institutional changes, it was a slow growth produced by those natural forces, religious, political, economic, and social, which had lain behind the Reformation itself. It was, moreover, a national movement for the reshaping of the national church into a form better suited than had been the earlier institution to the peculiar needs of the English nation." from the Preface.

"In this thoughtful and moving book the author compares the strength and beauty of Christianity with some of the popular secular gospels of the day. In the turmoil of modern life there is a longing to attain to some region of peace, some state of invulnerability, some Utopia. The author shows that these dreams are too fragile; that they neglect the stern conditons imposed on all human desires for self-perfection and the happiness of others. It is not Divine Love which makes men suffer; it is Man himself who has forced love to be painful. Yet out of man's own choice and human evil God works the wonder of hope and a sublime happiness. Nor is there any other way. The short cut of so many modern idealists and reformers are merely blind alleys, leading to disappointment and despair." from the jacket flap. Not Price Clipped.
