For Abraham Heschel, piety describes the contours of a lifestyles appropriate with God's presence. whereas a lot has been made up of Heschel's inspiration of pathos, fairly little awareness has been given to the pivotal position of piety in his idea, with the outcome that the bigger methodological implications of his paintings for either Jewish and Christian theology were neglected.

Grounding Heschel's paintings in Husserl, Dilthey, Schiller and Heidegger, the booklet explores his phenomenological approach to "penetrating the realization of the pious individual so one can understand the divine fact in the back of it." The publication is going directly to think of the importance of Heschel's method in view of the theocentric ethics of Gustafson and Hauerwas and the post-modern context mirrored within the works of Levinas, Vattimo, Marion and the novel Orthodoxy movement.
