Holiness in Words: Abraham Joshua Heschel's Poetics of Piety
State University of New York Press, 14 mars 1996 - 213 pages
Holiness in Words: Abraham Joshua Heschel’s Poetics of Piety is both an introduction to reading Heschel’s works in English, and an in-depth study of the way his literary style can transform the consciousness of readers. Heschel’s life and works respond to the contemporary crisis in religion, formulating positions on faith and despair, racism and social justice, the Holocaust, interreligious dialogue, and the availability of God’s presence. We study Heschel’s theory and use of literary language, his “poetics of piety,” in order to elucidate his narrative strategy to teach God-centered (or prophetic) thinking.
