Review of Majesty and Humility: The Thought of Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveichik

OU Press takes special pride in playing a major role in the growing body of literature by and about Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchick, the Rav, and is pleased to present three new important publications.

In Majesty and Humility: The Thought of Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik, Rabbi Reuven Ziegler, director of research and archives at the Toras HoRav Foundation, takes on the daunting challenge of surveying the Rav’s thought and presenting his teachings and worldview in a clear and organized fashion. Writing in comprehensible language, Rabbi Ziegler takes the reader through the major tenets of the Rav’s thought and his significant writings and integrates the Rav’s life with his thought. Suitable for both the experienced student of the Rav and one looking for an introduction to his approach, Majesty and Humility offers the perfect introduction to the extensive corpus of the Rav’s works and philosophy.

The original review appeared in the Jewish Action.
