If you live in Jewish San Diego, you probably know or have heard of Rabbi Wayne D. Dosick. He founded Congregations Beth El and Beth Am. Currently, he is writing well-received books on contemporary topics important to all of us. His wise counsel and joyful world view are reflected in the current title, Radical Loving: One God, One World, One People. Featuring stories not only for Jewish people but all of us living in these confusing times, his perspective is unique, calming and highly provocative.
He covers a broad subject range. Well known for his quality scholarship and sacred spirit, he is the rabbi of The Elijah Minyan, a retired visiting professor at the University of San Diego, and the host of the monthly Internet radio program, “SpiritTalk Live!,” heard on “HealthyLife.net.”
For many of us, it feels as if our world is breaking apart. Long-held, comfortable beliefs are being shattered, and we face unprecedented questions and challenges. How do we heal the harsh divisions of class, race, religion, and cultures that plague us? How do we vanquish sexism, rigid fundamentalism, unabashed nationalism, senseless hatred, and violent terrorism? How do we save our precious planet from the threats to its very existence?
In this book is a bold, visionary, Spirit-filled blueprint for the redemption, transformation, and evolution of our emerging new world through radical loving and a day-to-day sense of the sacred. With age-old wisdom wrapped in contemporary garb, sweet, inspiring stories, keen insights, and gentle guidance, Radical Loving is a call to renewal and to Oneness — a promise that Earth can be Eden once again.
“Rabbi Dosick has written more theological books than this one, but none wiser or more courageous. While his idiom here is Jewish, my liberal Catholic heart is cheering,” said Jon M. Sweeney, coauthor, Meister Eckhart’s Book of the Heart, and translator, Francis of Assisi in His Own Words
