Heschel on the Prophets

“To us the moral state of society, for all its spots and stains, seems fair and trim; to the prophet, it is dreadful. So many deeds of charity are done, so much decency radiates day and night; yet to the prophet satiety of the conscience is prudery and flight from responsibility.” – Abraham Heschel

From his most awesome and fearful book The Prophets.

What could be better, after all, than a book on the Jewish prophets, written by a Jewish prophet?
