WAR AND PEACE
The Teachings of HaRav Avraham Yitzhak HaCohen Kook
This commentary illuminates Rabbi Kook's writings on the subjects of war and peace. In his penetrating and poetic style, Rabbi Kook teaches that war can often be a catalyst for redemption, uprooting evil, erasing false doctrines, and uncovering Israel's great righteousness. With a love for all of humanity, Rabbi Kook examines the deep, inner causes of war, and illumines the Divine Hand behind all of world history. True peace, he explains, can only be achieved when the nation of Israel is united and guided by the supreme moral light of the Torah.
Often startling in its condemnation of Western civilization's moral decline, Rabbi Kook's writings on war reveal a little-known side of his giant Torah personality. Written during the height of World War One, his essays read like prophecies heralding the rebirth of the Jewish nation in Israel, a miracle that began to unfold in the aftermath of the war.
