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.
