The twentieth century brought disillusionment and fragmentation to Jewish thought on fundamental issues such as redemption and revelation, eternity and history, messianism and politics. In this new book, Michael L. Morgan traces the evolution of this shift in values, as expressed in the work of social thinkers, novelists, artists, and poets as well as philosophers and theologians, arguing that the outcome for contemporary Jews is a pragmatic style of religiosity that has abandoned traditional conceptions of Judaism and is searching and waiting for new ones, a condition that he describes as 'interim Judaism.'
