Eliezer Berkovits is one of my favourite writers of Jewish Thought. I consider his book "God, Man and History" to be a masterpiece. As I wrote in my review of that book: "If I were ever asked to make the impossible choice of recommending one book, and one book only, on Jewish thought, God, Man and History would most definitely make it to the short list." Although "Not in Heaven" does not reach the same heights of "God, Man and History", it is still a remarkable book. Berkovits sets out to map the history of Halacha, Jewish law, and to explain its functions and nature. It is a great book even for someone new to Jewish Philosophy, as Berkovits illustrates his principles with numerous examples from the Talmud and other scriptures. ( )
