The world we engage with is a vibrant collage brought to
consciousness by language and our creative imagination. It is
through the symbolic forms of language that the human world of
value is revealed-this is where religious scholar Michael Fishbane
dwells in his latest contribution to Jewish thought. In Fragile
Finitude, Fishbane clears new ground for a theological life through
a novel reinterpretation of the Book of Job. On this basis, he
offers a contemporary engagement with the four classical types of
Jewish Scriptural exegesis. The first focuses on worldly
experience, the second on communal forms of practice and thought in
the rabbinical tradition, the third on personal development, and
the fourth on transcendent, cosmic orientations. Through these four
modes, Fishbane manages to transform Jewish theology from within,
at once reinvigorating a long tradition and moving beyond it. What
he offers is nothing short of a way to reorient our lives in
relation to the divine and our fellow humans. Written from within
the Jewish tradition, Fragile Finitude is intended for readers
across the religious spectrum.
