Repentance for Life by Steven Pruzansky
Jews traditionally approach the Days of Awe with a combination of excitement and trepidation. It is the time for judgment and repentance but also a season of renewal. Repentance for Life explores eighteen different dimensions of repentance – as it relates to happiness, suffering, peace, children, tzedakah, free will, forgiveness, fear of sin, the World to Come, the hidden things in life, humility, the land of Israel, love of Jews, and many others. Each chapter analyzes one of these facets of teshuvah and provides compelling and life-transforming insights into this most vital element of the Jewish personality.
