Putting God Second: How to Save Religion From Itself
In Putting God Second, Donniel Hartman tackles one of modern life’s most urgent and vexing questions: Why are the great monotheistic faiths - Judaism, Christianity, and Islam - chronically unable to fulfill their own self-professed goal of creating individuals infused with moral sensitivity and societies governed by the highest ethical standards? To answer this question, Donniel takes a sober look at the moral peaks and valleys of his own tradition, Judaism, and diagnoses it with clarity, creativity, and erudition. He rejects both the sweeping denouncements of those who view religion as an inherent impediment to moral progress and the apologetics of fundamentalists who proclaim religion’s moral perfection against all evidence to the contrary.

The Boundaries of Judaism
By Donniel Hartman
The factionalism and denominationalism of modern Jewry makes it supremely difficult to create a definition of the Jewish people. This book aims to take readers beyond the divisions that characterize modern Jewry, and explores the ever contentious question, ‘Who is a Jew.’
