Inaccessible to the lay reader. Approached this book hoping to gain greater insight into the mind of the man who is supposedly at the forefront of the battle to reshape and guide Conservative Judaism through its clear and continuing struggles in his capacity as Chancellor of the JTS. Instead, this work is an institutional product from the recesses of the Office of the Chancellor begging only for peer recognition. The Author's contempt for the lay reader is evident in his approach that demands the reader to be well versed in Enlightenment (and subsequent) philosophical works and concurrent Jewish product. If this is not enough, one only need to review his public comments to his lay constituency while basking in the light of the Chancellor. For the thinking lay reader, a more accessible recommendation: Judaism and Modern Man, by Wil Herberg
