Martin Buber was one of the most significant religious thinkers of the twentieth century. In this short and remarkable book he presents the essential teachings of Hasidism, the mystical Jewish movement which swept through Eastern Europe in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Told through stories of imagination and spirit, together with Buber’s own unique insights, The Way of Man offers us a way of understanding ourselves and our place in a spiritual world. ‘There is something’, he suggests, ‘that can only be found in one place. It is a great treasure, which may be called the fulfillment of existence. The place where this treasure can be found is the place on which one stands.’ Challenging us to recognize our own potential and to reach our true goal, The Way of Man is a life-enhancing book. We will read, study and discuss this remarkable work.
