Signposts to the Messianic Age

Rayner, John

This collection, mainly of more recent sermons and lectures is a summation of the author's life as a preacher and teacher. It is now offered to a wider public than the relatively small audiences to which they were originally addressed. If there is a common thread that runs through this volume, it is its emphasis on the gentler and more outward-looking values of Judaism, which are not much in evidence today. By cultivating and exemplifying these values Jews can best contribute to humanity as it struggles to shake off its present troubles and yearns to find again the road map to justice and peace, not only in the Middle East but everywhere. This is a fitting tribute to a man whose pastoral care and love of Judaism stretch far beyond the confines of his community and reach out to followers of all religious traditions.
