Summary "Friends, family, love, God, death, faith. These are deceptively simple words that we use all the time. But do we know what we mean by these important words? Do we know what other people mean when they use them? Because we seldom pause to reflect on these words, we misunderstand others, and they misunderstand us."--BOOK JACKET. "Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz explores some of the meanings of these powerful words that are so central to our lives. He transforms each word into a gem, turning it this way, then that, examining it to see more clearly its brilliant facets and what lies behind them. He challenges us to think deeply about the connotations of these commonplace words, and in so doing, to see that there may be other ways of looking at things we have taken for granted all our lives."--BOOK JACKET
