Einstein's Rabbi by Michael Cohen.. is a bildungsroman without bluster. A sweet, serious novel about the intersection of faith and science, told in a conversational style, the author takes a fresh approach to a personal spiritual flowering with warm but prickly characters you'll nevertheless love, including Einstein's fictionalized rabbi.

Joel Gardner, LitSnap Editor

"I read Einstein s Rabbi in a single sitting. What made it so compelling was the believability of the three voices: narrator, rabbi, and Einstein....It is a measure of their wisdom that what they say is as full of questions as it is of answers.."

Rev. Frederick Buechner, Pulitzer Prize nominee

"Einstein s Rabbi is fascinating, engaging and uniquely creative. It is more than the story of a young person s spiritual quest. It touches on many of the deep and fundamental issues that we face in our world today.."

Patrick Leahy, US Senator
