Rabbi Gary P. Zola: "Professor Zelizer’s important volume reminds us that Heschel applied his philosophical sagacity to a wide range of throbbing societal issues that have not waned over the past half century. In fact, these same communal challenges continue to vex us today, just as they did sixty years ago."
