The Biblical View of Man
By (author) Leo Adler
Translated by Daniel R. Schwartz
Foreword by Shimon Gesundheit
Biblical View of Man by Leo Adler
Book DescriptionThe Biblical View of Man argues cogently that the Bible is more about human beings than about God and insists that, in the biblical view, what human beings need is not so much wisdom or grace but rather their own free will to fulfill the obligations that a loving God has bestowed upon them in order to allow them to prove and improve themselves. According to Rabbi Leo Adler, the exercise of such free will, rather than implying a lack of need for God, actually requires a firm commitment to God. First published in German in 1965, this engaging interpretation of the Bible appears in English for the first time.
