In a time of social turbulence, Nahum Ward-Lev mines Biblical wisdom to illumine a way forward. His book explores the rich territory of liberating social change as articulated by the Hebrew prophets and lived by Biblical persons.  Ward-Lev examines the development of these Biblical liberation themes in contemporary prophetic writers including Paulo Freire, Abraham Joshua Heschel, Martin Luther King, Jr., and bell hooks.

In clarifying practices for the liberation journey, prioritizing reciprocal relationships, engaging in dialogue, exercising social and artistic imagination, and nurturing a love ethic in public life, his book empowers readers of all faiths and backgrounds to see through a prophetic lens and engage in prophetic action.

Rabbi Nahum Ward-Lev received a Doctor of Divinity degree from Hebrew Union College in Los Angeles. For the past twenty years he has served as a rabbi and scholar in residence at Temple Beth Shalom in Santa Fe, NM. He has lectured and delivered retreats throughout the U.S.
