I am re-reading In the Beginning aloud to my husband, and it's been so long since I read it the first time, that it is like starting over again, and just as meaningful the second time.
There are so many themes to explore in this work - persecution against the Jewish people; struggles of immigrants; man's inhumanity to man; the challenge of being a precocious child; Max Lurie's extended depression over his perceived failures; Jewish misconceptions of Christianity and vice versa; religious ritual vs. This story, told through the eyes of an extraordinary child, is eye-opening to those of us who have not had to live though war, depression, and persecution.
Paperback Verified download. His gradual transition from traditional orthodox education to embracing "modern" ie "critical" scholarship is reflected in his protagonists, here David Lurie and earlier in The Chosen by the Malters Potok documents his characters struggles but needs to justify his characters choices by implying that David's Orthodox Talmud teacher R Scharfman a thinly veiled reference to R J Soloveitchik of YU encouraged his choice of academic Bible study despite recognizing that it would undermine his Orthodox heritage Somehow Potok seems to imply that the anti Semitic bullying that Davie faces at the hand of his gentile neighbor is no different than the schoolyard bullying he later faces at the hand of his classmate.
It's unclear what exactly Potoks point is meant to be and he leaves both storylines incomplete.
Potok does an admirable job of describing the trials and tribulations of his characters but one can't help but sense Potoks writes from a need tto justify his own personal life choices. I hated this book, and then I loved it. It was the most boring book I have ever read, and then it was so exciting. I cannot categorize it because I can find no category for it.
It is the story of a brilliant minded Jewish boy who with his family is grounded in his faith. It hurts his family and his church when he becomes a secular Bible scholar. The Sheltering Sky.
