This chapter discusses the theological beliefs of Jewish Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel. It suggests that reading Heschel's writings is like coming back to the common Jewish and Christian heritage, and that to read Heschel is to allow his thought to penetrate the deepest recesses of one's heart. This chapter clarifies some misconceptions and misinterpretations that consider Heschel's as a challenge for Catholic theology. Even today, Heschel's legacy in Poland is still very vivid, particularly among Polish Jews.

Keywords:   Abraham Joshua Heschel, Jewish rabbi, Catholic theology, Poland, Christian heritage
