[nice-looking book, gilt lettering on spine and front cover bright as new, slight bumping to bottom corners, shallow dent at edge of rear cover, light soiling to fore-edge; jacket a bit tattered, tears/chips at all corners, about one inch paper loss to base of spine]. The author undertakes in this book to address the "most serious maladjustment between life and religion" that he feels to be manifest in American Judaism. As the jacket blurb states: "Even the professing Orthodox Jew must admit that between the demands of religion and the call of modern American life the chasm is widening daily." However, by "following a proper historical perspective," he explains how to discover "the vital seed of self-preservation and ideal self-adjustment to prevailing conditions of life" that lies within Judaism itself. (This is a review copy, with the original publisher's slip laid in indicating that it was originally sent for review to the Literary Editor of the California Jewish Review in Los Angeles.)
