Summary Read First Chapter image missing

In this book, Avraham Shapira traces the history of Buber's ideas and locates underlying structures which unite Buber's thought. Ultimately, Hope for Our Time shows the connection between Buber's philosophy and his spiritual biography.

"Martin Buber remains one of the truly important religious teachers of the twentieth century. His 'philosophy of dialogue' and his commitment to personal encounter with the Other have had great impact on psychotherapy and the social sciences as well as on philosophy and theology. Avraham Shapira, a leading Israeli exponent of Buber, has written a study that captures both the Jewish and German roots of this unique figure. Buber's teaching is treated here as a living and powerful force, transcending all the denominational and religious/secular gaps that divide contemporary Jewry." -- Arthur Green, Philip W. Lown Professor of Jewish Thought, Brandeis University

"Avraham Shapira writes with his heart as well as his head. Empathy, often nourished by personal contact, is the key to his unerring ability to illuminate the rich legacy of Zionist giants such as Martin Buber, A.D. Gordon, and Gershom Scholem. Hope for Our Time is a masterful analysis of the conceptual structures that inform and animate the entire corpus of Buber's thought." -- Ismar Schorsch, Chancellor, Jewish Theological Seminary

Avraham Shapira is Professor, Department of Jewish History, Tel Aviv University. He is the author of The Kabbalistic and Hasidic Sources of A.D. Gordon's Thought.
