Rogue Rabbi A Spiritual Quest - from Seminary to Ashram and Beyond (Paperback)
|Author: Jerry Steinberg|
From the Publisher:
The fascinating story of a man whose exploration in spiritual existence has not been limited to his life as a rabbi, this autobiography shares Jerry Steinberg's experience down a path less traveled. Revealing an understanding of God that goes beyond the conventional, the memoir contributes to a different perception of the world today?an open-eyed and open-minded view that will resonate with readers of any religious or spiritual background. After traveling to India and investigating the Christian faith, Jerry went into medical school and narrowed his focus to psychotherapy?working with past-life regression, dreams, and psychogenic illness. He also became a rabbi; but Jerry never ceased to explore all aspects of faith, and he took up a specialization in Kabbalah, a discipline of Jewish mysticism. Jerry's self-proclaimed focus has been to seek the essence of spirituality through the interface between rationalism and mysticism, and between religion and sexuality. The story of this real-life spiritual explorer will both inspire and instruct through his universally peaceful and accepting example.
