Om There is No Messiah and You're it
The coming of the Messiah is anticipated by millions of people of many faiths as the ultimate salve for our spiritual lives and as a way to finally make the world a better place. THERE IS NO MESSIAH.AND YOU'RE IT examines the history of messianic hope and anticipation its evolution in Judaism and Jewish history and other interpretations of messiah that shed new light on what it means to usher in the kingdom of God. This fascinating book is our call to see ourselves as the fulfilment of not the anticipators of messianic change. Drawing from the Bible the Talmud rabbinic sources and modern-day scholars Rabbi Robert Levine provides us with an accessible fascinating understanding of messianic vision as well as false messiahs throughout Jewish history. He challenges the powerful idea of messiah that has survived in the heart soul and ethos of the Jewish people and reveals the immediacy of the messianic presence in our day-in our own lives. Compelling and controversial THERE IS NO MESSIAH AND YOU'RE IT inspires us to embody the noblest values of Jewish tradition-prayer study mitzvot and tzedakah-and embrace our own messianic potential to heal the world.
