Very highly recommended as informed and informative reading, "A Faithful heart: Preparing For The High Holy Days" by Benjamin Levy (the Rabbi of the Monroe Township Jewish Center in Spotswood, New Jersey) is a study text for students of Judaism which is based on The Midrash (Maaseh Avraham Avinu). Specific chapters focus on God's uniqueness, unity, and might. Other chapters deal with idolatry and spiritual survival, what it means to be 'God's Servant', as well as the efficacy of prayer and good intentions. Of special note is the postscript 'A Rabbinic Response to the Challenges of Jewish Survival'. Founded on impeccable scholarship, "A Faithful Heart" is completely accessible to the non-specialist general reader with an interest in Judaism and spirituality.
