520    The religious person in the modern world, especially the 
       academic world, lives under fire. In every area his views 
       are assailed as outmoded and anachronistic. In the 
       scientific arena, in particular, new discoveries and 
       theories constantly call into question traditional 
       notions. In response, a new literary genre has arisen 
       offering innovative approaches to issues of religion and 
       science. Jewish writers have not been left behind. Torah, 
       Chazal & Science is a unique contribution to this 
       discussion in its emphasis on faithfulness to the Mesorah 
       - the system of beliefs passed down from generation to 
       generation - and on appreciation for the profundity of 
       Chazal (the sages of the Talmud). The author's thesis is 
       that valid solutions can come only from within the Torah's
       own framework. Moreover, remaining true to the classic 
       sources is the best way to let the Torah's light shine 
       forth. Authentic Torah sells itself. Through this book the
       reader will gain a new appreciation for the Torah's truth 
       and beauty. --|cJacket
