For clergy and religious leaders concerned about the narrow, often intolerant religious forces that are trying to dominate national policy, [this] book offers a way forward to a more complete, compassionate discourse…. I heartedly recommend it.

In this deeply spiritual and sustaining short book, drawing on his own personal and professional experience as well as some Hasidic tales, Ross applies the major themes of the I-Thou philosophy to every day life and describes with passion and enthusiasm they ways in which it can enrich our everyday lives.
With a keen eye, a deft heart and a great hand, Dennis Ross has knowingly shown how everyday events illumine the depths of Martin Buber's classic volume on life with God and others. Many have read I and Thou but rarely has its human/spiritual effect been so tellingly brought down to earth.
