No Other Gods: The Modern Struggle Against Idolatry

Front Cover
Behrman House, Inc, 1995 - Art - 144 pages
Idolatry is not just the worship of idols and clay figures. While the nature of the temptation has changed over the years, idolatry is as much a threat today as it was in our ancestors' time. Today, we face the lures of a material society. For many of us, our careers expand at the expense of our personal lives. Seeskin looks at turning points in Jewish history to demonstrate how Judaism can respond to the modern threat of idolatry. The example of our forebears can help us confront today's temptations--and preserve the holiness in our lives.
