In this volume, Rabbi Aharon Lichtenstein explores the development of the religious personality. He advocates a life centered on the service of God, but recognizes multiple paths to this goal. Acknowledging that both the Jewish value system and human experience are multifaceted, he examines the relevant issues from an unusually wide perspective.

Rabbi Lichtenstein’s essays reflect not only a staunch commitment to Halakha and a firm grounding in rigorous Torah study, but also a deep spirituality, a profound moral sensitivity, and a keen awareness of both the challenges and opportunities of modernity. While being enlightened by Rabbi Lichtenstein’s penetrating analyses and wide-ranging learning, the reader will also be inspired by the beauty of his vision of the religious life.

Visits to Har Etzion by the most elite instructional institution in the IDF - The IDF Command and Staff College ("Pum") - seem to have become a tradition. Brigadier General Commander Noam Tivon explains why: "I consider Rav Medan a leader, an ideological leader, but also a leader who seeks ways to build bridges, and therefore it is so important to hear him."
