Orthodoxy, Truth, and Theology

By Meir Soloveichik

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), December 2005

In response to an essay by David Gelernter in Commentary, arguing for the need of a concise delineation of Jewish theology, Soloveichik asks what an Orthodox theologian would uniquely include in such a project. Soloveichik argues that Orthodox theology must maintain a truth exclusivity approach, though this does not entail abandoning love for other nations and those with whom we disagree about the truth.
