From the Back Cover:

"Strassfeld presents the whole of Jewish life as a practice-path of attentiveness to the moment-to-moment possibility of connecting with the sacred. His conversational tone and wit support the enormous amount of information and guidance in his book, keeping it always accessible, engaging, and inspiring."
--Sylvia Boorstein, author of Pay Attention, For Goodness' Sake

"Strassfeld offers his readers a thoughtful blend of richly traditional Judaism and contemporary spiritual quest. You will learn a lot from this warm and open-hearted portrayal."
--Rabbi Arthur Green, author of These Are the Words: A Vocabulary of Jewish Spiritual Life

"A Book of Life wonderfully illuminates traditional Jewish teachings to make a set of practices come alive for our contemporary world. Strassfeld doesn't shy away from the difficult questions, the ones that compel us to bring our deepest values to our real and present experiences in order to have an authentic spiritual life."
--Sharon Salzberg, author of Lovingkindness: The Revolutionary Art of Happiness

"Strassfeld presents the whole of Jewish life as a practice-path of attentiveness to the moment-to-moment possibility of connecting with the sacred. His conversational tone and wit support the enormous amount of information and guidance in his book, keeping it always accessible, engaging, and inspiring."
--Sylvia Boorstein, author of Pay Attention, For Goodness' Sake

"Rabbi Strassfeld has set a sumptuous table for students of Judaism in his Book of Life. Paying equal attention to ethics, spirituality, and ritual, Strassfeld gently guides readers through the practices of Judaism that lead to a mindful Jewish life. This book is perfect for congregations, for undergraduate courses, for conversion classes, and for searchers from every walk of life."
--Rabbi Burton L. Visotzky, Appleman Chair of Midrash and Interreligious Studies, Jewish Theological Seminary

"Over the years, Michael Strassfeld has consistently captured the liberal spiritual imagination of American life, and now he has done it once again in this thoughtful and comprehensive introduction to Judaism for our time. The necessary facts and lexicon of Jewish life are masterfully woven into a creative web of traditional Jewish wisdom and altogether novel interpretation. He covers the usual topics like prayer and holiday observance, but also the unusual ones--like work, speech, and ecological consciousness--in fact, pretty much every area where modern men and women seek out spiritual meaning and ethical guidance."
--Rabbi Lawrence A. Hoffman, author of The Way into Jewish Prayer
