Dear Zealots: Letters from a Divided Land by Amos Oz | Conversation Starters
Amos Oz does not exempt himself from being called a fanatic and proposes that readers embrace the responsibility of facing the fanatic who resides in our own souls. He provides a closer look at Judaism and asks what its essence is. The book is considered by critics as a necessary work that tackles urgent matters addressing the rise of zealotry all over nations worldwide, including Israel.
Oz gives an eloquent discussion of Jewish traditions of dissent, disagreement, and doubt. He cites the Jews' love of Hebrew literature and says that "the Jews who engage with the present as much as the past " are the most Jewish.
Amos Oz was an internationally multi-awarded Israeli-born author also known for Judas and the autobiographical Panther in the Basement.
