"Great writing always takes us from the particular to the universal. Though This Is Not The Way is ostensibly about the Jews, Judaism and Israel, it actually spreads its light upon the deceits and hypocrisies of all religious forms today. A brave and passionate book, it should be read by anyone interested in the healing of the nations."
Bishop Richard Holloway, author of 'Leaving Alexandria'.
"The God of Israel, the Land of Israel and the people of Israel traditionally form an unbreakable triangle. In modern times some of the connections have become rusty or worn. Drawing on a wide-ranging experience and reading, Rabbi Goldberg subjects the eternal triangle to a fresh appraisal. His insights and suggestions ... are humane, acute, and often iconoclastic."
Professor Nicholas de Lange,
Professor of Hebrew and Jewish Studies, University of Cambridge
"In the aftermath of its victory in the June 1967 War, Israel lost its moral compass. Many Diaspora Jews suffer from selective moral vision about Israel. Rabbi David Goldberg is an admirable exception. He places Israel's treatment of the Palestininans under an uncompromising lens. After the critique comes an eloquent plea for ethical Zionism - Zionism grounded in Jewish values. Rabbi Goldberg writes with exceptional insight and wisdom and he draws on his personal experience to brilliantly illuminating effect. His book carries important messages for Jews and non-Jews alike and it deserves the widest possible readership."
Fellow of the British Academy and author of The Iron Wall: Israel and the Arab World
