Congratulations to America Magazine for its new website, and for its fascinating article, "Lovingly Observant," by Doris Donnelly and John Pawlikowski. It's an interview with Susannah Heschel, who holds a chair in Jewish Studies at Dartmouth, about her father, the great Jewish rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel.
I first read his book, The Prophets, a couple of years ago-- it's really a wonderful piece of theology, and a fine way into the complex and compelling world of the prophets of the Hebrew Bible and the Christian Old Testament. It's long --very long in fact--but don't be put off. It's so engagingly written the pages just speed by!
