Summary
"Life changing wisdom from one of Judaism's most powerful texts the Haggadah, which can be found in Jewish homes around the world, has guided Jewish families and friends through Pesach celebrations for millennia. In The Telling: How Judaism's Essential Book Reveals the Meaning of Life, author Mark Gerson shows how even the most familiar passages from the Haggadah are sitting on top of buried treasures ready to help us live more meaningful and fulfilling lives today. The Telling will enable readers to make their seder the most engaging, inspiring and important night of the Jew's year - and readers generally to understand how Jewish wisdom can help them to live their happiest, most purposeful and worthwhile lives. The fundamental questions of life that The Telling addresses include those of freedom, blessings, parenthood, dreams, education, idolatry, family, forgiveness, willpower, dreams, memory, wisdom, goodness, analogies, habits, newness, music, food, aging, false humility, the role of the imagination, the purpose of political debate, the cultivation and expression of gratitude, the State of Israel, our relationship with God, the secret of joy, the meaning of history, the presentation of miracles - and much more. The Telling, which calls on disciplines from Talmudic discussion to evolutionary psychology to understand the Haggadah, is a groundbreaking reexamination of one of the most powerful texts in Judaism - and an indispensable source of wisdom and insight for people of all faiths"--Provided by publisher
