The review of Reb Schachter-Shalomi’s new book (First Steps to a New Jewish Spirit) at J. reads like an enhanced table of contents. It lists lots of questions and wets the appetite to get the answers. Or at least get an answer provided by the esteemed author with a multitude of interests and expertise areas. When he asks I found it worthwhile to listen. He is amongst the best combination of modernity and deep tradition I know of.
