78 - To Heal a Fractured World
In To Heal a Fractured World, Rabbi Sacks (the chief rabbi of Great Britain) has written a book on the ethics of responsibility that will appeal to both Jews and non-Jews alike. Based on the idea that God has invited all of us to be partners in creation, Sacks forms an ethic in which we are called to responsibility for the world in which we live. Drawing on the Bible, Jewish Law, and theology -- as well as philosophy, psychology and ethicists from other cultures -- to show that we "are here to make a difference, to mend the fractures in the world, a day at a time, an act at a time, for as long as it takes to make it a place of justice and compassion".
