Piety is usually looked with a pejorative bias: a "pious" individual is believed to be overly non secular, supercilious even. but traditionally the concept that of piety has performed a massive function in Christian theology and perform. For Abraham Heschel, piety describes the contours of a existence appropriate with God's presence. whereas a lot has been made up of Heschel's thought of pathos, particularly little awareness has been given to the pivotal position of piety in his idea, with the end result that the bigger methodological implications of his paintings for either Jewish and Christian theology were missed.

Grounding Heschel's paintings in Husserl, Dilthey, Schiller and Heidegger, the ebook explores his phenomenological approach to "penetrating the recognition of the pious individual to be able to understand the divine fact in the back of it." The booklet is going directly to contemplate the importance of Heschel's technique in view of the theocentric ethics of Gustafson and Hauerwas and the post-modern context mirrored within the works of Levinas, Vattimo, Marion and the unconventional Orthodoxy movement.
