Pondering the Imponderable explores the philosophical and theological problems of God and their implications from a Judaic perspective including the attempts at ‘knowing the unknowable’ and ‘naming the unnamable’ that have been articulated over the course of some two millennia, as well as how the chasm between man and God is bridged through revelation and the implications of these ideas for the ultimate question of what takes place after death, resurrection, immortality of the soul, or transmigration or reincarnation. In discussing these issues, the non-specialized reader will be introduced to the vast corpus of rabbinic literature written over a period of some two millennia to the present day and to many works that have never been translated into English.
