Parts I through IV of Teaching Tefilah contain fifteen chapters, each dealing with a section of the worship service or a topic related to prayer. Part V, new in this expanded revised edition, contains six new essays reflecting on recent trends in Jewish worship.Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel says, aquot;It is only after we kindle a light in the words that we are able to behold the riches they contain. ...

In an early Jewish renewal prayer book for Shabbat, Rabbi Burt Jacobson translated this same verse as follows: aquot;May the beauty of God rest on us.
