Finding God in Our Own Stories

In this powerful book, Carol Ochs shows us how to develop a
personal theology by examining our life stories, learning to
recognize God at work in them, and bringing them into conversation
with Torah. Using timeless biblical texts as lenses to see the
present, she helps us understand who we are and who God is for us
by exploring the tightly interwoven basic elements of our
lives--our love, suffering, work, bodies, prayer, community, and
experiences of death.

Through the process of seeing our experiences in relation to
Biblical stories, we begin to recognize our lives as part of the
ongoing story of the Jewish people--as Torah. This insight allows
us to see these experiences as meaningful, not accidental, and
opens us to recognizing God's power in and through all that happens
to us. Rather than a collection of random events, our lives are
part of the Jewish people's ongoing adventure. Armed with our
personally shaped theology, we can face this adventure of living in
the vanguard of history with awareness and confidence.
