On the Death of a Giant II

I was on the Ktav website and came across what looks like a very interesting new book of R. Emanuel Rackman’s sermons and writings: A Modern Orthodox Life: Sermons and Columns of Rabbi Emanuel Rackman (link):

A Modern Orthodox Life by Rabbi Emanuel Rackman brings together some 75 sermons, columns, and articles by one of modern Orthodoxy’s most distinguished figures. Some of the writings in this volume go back many years, but the thoughts they express are as pertinent today as they were when first set down. They cover a broad range of topics that will be of interest to thoughtful readers of every Jewish background, and grapple with questions and issues that still demand reflection and seek resolution. All in all, this volume is a moving and profoundly human distillation of the wisdom of a lifetime spent in the rabbinate.
