In treating such questions, Faith in the Future is structured in four parts. In the first, "The Moral Covenant", Sacks touches on the broadest of issues: morality, the family, and the importance of communities in the life of society. In the second, "Living Together", he asks how we can co-exist while remaining faithful to our distinctive identities and traditions. In the third, "Holy Days", he describes how one faith, Judaism, lives out its beliefs; and in the last, "Jewish Ethics and Spirituality", he sketches some of Judaism's leading themes. "There is such a thing", he says, as an ecology of hope, and it lies in restoring to our culture a sense of family, community, and religious faith".
All those concerned about the state of contemporary society, whether of any faith community or none, will find Faith in the Future profound, challenging, and deeply moving.
