Seekers of Meaning 10/27/2023: “Taking Miracles Seriously,” with Rabbi Michael Zedek

On this week’s episode of the Seekers of Meaning TV Show and Podcast, Rabbi Michael Zedek discusses his new book, Taking Miracles Seriously: A Journey to Everyday Spirituality.

An accomplished storyteller with a refreshing, humorous voice, Rabbi Zedek draws on a range of materials including biblical tales, Indian and Japanese folklore, the works of St. Augustine, Einstein, Isaac Bashevis Singer, and Groucho Marx to take readers on a truly original search for spiritual sustenance in everyday life. Readers will learn how to identify and appreciate the miraculous in an often mundane world; how to take God seriously when much of the intellectual world doesn’t; and how to make the most out of underutilized spiritual resources such as poetry and prayer. Heartfelt and amusing, Taking Miracles Seriously is a master course on how to craft an enriched and enriching spiritual life.
