504    Includes bibliographical references (pages 249-256) and 
520 1  "More than forty years have passed since Louis Jacobs 
       first put forward the argument that traditionally 
       observant Jews have no reason to take issue with the 
       results obtained by the historical critics in their 
       investigation into the Bible and the other classical 
       sources of Judaism. In his numerous works on Jewish 
       theology and in lectures worldwide, Jacobs has argued that
       the traditional doctrine which claims that 'the Torah is 
       from Heaven' can and should be maintained - provided that 
       the word 'from' is understood in a non-fundamentalist way 
       to denote that there is a human as well as a divine 
       element in the Torah: God revealing His will not only to 
       but through the Jewish people in their historical 
       experiences as they reached out to Him." "As a result of 
       these views, which were first published in the still-
       controversial text We Have Reason to Believe, the Anglo-
       Jewish Orthodox hierarchy banned Jacobs from serving as an
       Orthodox rabbi. This was the cause of the notorious 
       'Jacobs affair', which culminated in the creation of the 
       New London Synagogue and, eventually, in the establishment
       of the Masorti movement in the UK with strong affinities 
       with Conservative Judaism in the United States." "In this 
       new book, Louis Jacobs examines afresh all the issues 
       involved. He does so objectively but with passion, meeting
       the objections put forward by critics from the various 
       trends within the Jewish world, both Orthodox and Reform, 
       and inviting readers to follow the argument and make up 
       their own minds."--BOOK JACKET.
