Contemporary theology, and Jewish theology in particular, Michael Fishbane asserts, now lies fallow, beset by strong critiques from within and without. For Jewish reality, a coherent and wide-ranging response in thoroughly modern terms is needed. Sacred Attunement is Fishbane's attempt to renew Jewish theology for our time, in the larger context of modern and postmodern challenges to theology and theological thought in the broadest sense. The first part of the book regrounds theology in this setting and opens up new pathways through nature, art, and the theological dimension as a whole. In the second section, Fishbane introduces his hermeneutical theology - one grounded in the interpretation of scripture as a distinctly Jewish practice. The third section focuses on modes of self-cultivation for awakening and sustaining a covenant theology. The final section takes up questions of scripture, authority, belief, despair, and obligation as theological topics in their own right. The first full-scale Jewish theology in America since Abraham J. Heschel's God in Search of Man and the first comprehensive Jewish philosophical theology since Franz Rosenzweig's Star of Redemption, Sacred Attunement is a work of uncommon personal integrity and originality from one of the most distinguished scholars of Judaica in our time.

This is a comprehensive study of myth in the Hebrew Bible and myth and mythmaking in classical rabbinic literature (Midrash and Talmud) and in the classical work of medieval Jewish mysticism (the book of Zohar). Michael Fishbane provides a close study of the texts and theologies involved and the central role of exegesis in the development and transformation of the subject. Taken up are issues of myth and monotheism, myth and tradition, and myth and language. The presence and vitality of myth in successive cultural phases is treated, emphasizing certain paradigmatic acts of God and features of the divine personality.

How do we articulate a religious vision that embraces evolution and human authorship of Scripture? Drawing on the Jewish mystical traditions of Kabbalah and Hasidism, path-breaking Jewish scholar Arthur Green argues that a neomystical perspective can help us to reframe these realities, so they may yet be viewed as dwelling places of the sacred. In doing so, he rethinks such concepts as God, the origins and meaning of existence, human nature, and revelation to construct a new Judaism for the twenty-first century.

Music is the language of the soul, and Divine Attunement provides a unique window into the world of ecstatic music, sacred sound, and ritual dance. Written by master-musician and composer Yuval Ron, and with a foreword by Pir Zia Inayat-Khan, Ph.D., spiritual leader of Sufi Order International, the book is based on collaborations with Zen Buddhist masters, Jewish Kabbalists, Gnostic Christians, and Sufi mystics. It also includes the latest research from leading neuroscientists on how sound heals the body, mind, and spirit. Ron takes the reader on an amazing journey of self-discovery that inspires and enables greater access to energy, creativity, and joy. Divine Attunement contains twenty-one stories, essays, and wisdom parables which disclose the secrets of sacred music and guide the reader toward personal growth and transformation. Ron retells ancient legends about the Middle Eastern poets, gypsies, and great mystics – such as Rumi, Rabbi Yehuda Halevi, Hazrat Inayat Khan, and Baal Shem Tov – all of whom used music to commune with God. The book also includes two Appendices with meditative exercises involving music and movement to assist the reader in reaching authentic selfhood and experiencing a deeper connection with the Divine. Author Yuval Ron – the “Peace Musician” – will be donating proceeds from his book to international charities that support feeding the hungry, spreading interfaith understanding, and promoting peace. Divine Attunement is offered through Oracle Institute Press, a non-profit publishing house that serves as “an Advocate for Peace and a Vanguard for Conscious Evolution.”

"Judaism, like all the great religions, has a strand within it that sees inward devotion as an opening of the human heart to God's presence. This voice is not always easy to hear in a tradition where so much attention is devoted to the how rather than the why of religious living. The devotional claim, certainly a key part of Judaism's biblical heritage, has reasserted itself in the teachings of individual mystics and in the emergence of religious movements over the long course of Jewish history. This volume represents Rabbi Arthur Green's own quest for such a Judaism, both as a scholar and as a contemporary seeker. This collection of essays brings together Green's scholarly writings, centered on the history of early Hasidism, and his highly personal approach to a rebirth of Jewish spirituality in our own day. In choosing to present them in this way, he asserts a claim that they are all of a piece. They represent one man's attempt to wade through history and text, language and symbol, an array of voices both past and present, while always focusing on the essential question "What does it mean to be a religious human being, and what does Judaism teach us about it?" This, the author considers to be the heart of the matter." -- Publisher's description.
