No writer on Judaism commands more respect or a wider audience than Silver. Now he has written a scholarly but none the less lively book on the distinctive traits of Judaism in which he makes clear that its message of unity, freedom and compassion is a religion which springs from the heart of the Jewish people, and is indigenous to them. The Jewish idea of the universal brotherhood of man under One God who is the Father of all is unique in man's religious history, and can lead to a fuller life for those who realize and live by the ethical demands and share the moral action which derives from this high faith. Differences with other religions are made plain, but Rabbi Silver writes that a realization' of their common purpose will bring a better day for all men. Jews and Christians alike will read this book at great profit.
