Randi L. Rashkover and Martin Kavka, eds. W. Part of a series, Radical Traditions: Theology in a Postcritical Key, this complex scholarly collection of essays written by Novak over more than three decades is as much a tribute to the genius that Novak brings from the secular philosophical world and the Jewish scholarship field as it is an overview of his perspectives on a variety of issues.
