“Spiritual Audacity: The Abraham Joshua Heschel Story,” a film by Martin Doblmeier, part 1.
Polish-born American Rabbi, Abraham Joshua Heschel (1907-1972) was a towering theologian, philosopher, and civil rights and antiwar leader of the last century. Scholar of Jewish prophets and mysticism, Heschel was a friend of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Reinhold Niebuhr. Today we will view the first half of the film, created by the maker of documentaries about significant religious figures such as Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Dorothy Day, Reinhold Niebuhr, and Howard Thurman.
