One of the most important books of the twentieth century
The Star of Redemption is essential reading for anyone interested in understanding religion and philosophy. Fusing philosophy and theology, the book assigns both Judaism and Christianity distinct but equally important roles in the spiritual structure of the world and finds in both biblical religions approaches to a comprehension of reality.
The major themes and motifs of The Starthe birth, life, death, and immortality of the soul; Eastern philosophies and Jewish mysticism; the relationship between God, world, and humanity over time; and revelation as the real biblical miracle of faith and path to redemptionresonate meaningfully.
Franz Rosenzweig (18861929) helped establish Das freie jüdische Lehrhaus (Free House of Jewish Learning) in Frankfurt-am-Main. Rosenzweig is one of the greatest contributors to Jewish philosophy in the twentieth century.
A reprint of Rosenzweig’s classic On Jewish Learning is also available from the University of Wisconsin Press.
