Literary Theology

By Howard Wettstein

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, April 2011

The author discusses the disconnect between the analytical ,literal properties of God as set forth by philosophers and the God of whom the Bible and Jewish prayer speaks in metaphorical and anthropomorphic terms. Perhaps poetic reference to God is better than analytical reference, the author suggests.
