  1. Rabbi J. Harold Romirowsky

    …dramatically written…. A fascinating book made interesting and alive by the use of conversations between Rabbi Kook and the important people of his generation…. It moves quickly and is a narrative of action and accomplishments. …The reader can find pleasure and enlightenment as he becomes engrossed in the story of one of the greatest luminaries of this century. -Rabbi J. Harold Romirowsky, THE JEWISH EXPONENT

  2. JEWISH BOOKLAND

    The reader will find inspiration in the life of Rabbi Kook. Rabbi Kook was loved by all elements of the Yishuv. His devotion to the people of Israel, despite basic ideological differences, was most rare. He made an indelible impact on Jewish life throughout the world.
