First edition of 20th century Jewish theologian Abraham J. Heschel’s third book on the philosophy of Judaism. Octavo, original cloth. Near fine in a fine dust jacket with some rubbing to the extremities and a chip to the crown of the spine, bookplate. A bright example.

One of the leading Jewish theologians of the 20th century, Polish-born American Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel published a number of widely read books on Jewish philosophy. A companion volume to his 1951 nook, Man Is Not Alone, God in Search of Man is a discussion of the nature of religious thought and how it becomes religious faith. Throughout the text, Heschel further expounds on his views as they relate to the nature of Judaism as a religion and the importance of internal devotion.
