What is the eternal punishment of the lost? What is the eternal life that God promises his people? What is this "hell" which is claimed as part of Christian belief but goes against our sense of justice and rightness? Why were Adam and Eve thrown out of Eden? Can a God of love send most of those he has made in his own image to a place of nonstop torment? What is the connection between the current heaven and earth and the new heaven and earth that God promises? Beginning with the tree of life, and taking Hebrews 12.29, "Our God is a consuming fire," as his pivotal text, Michael Greed addresses these and similar questions. His central argument is that there is only one fire in the Bible--our God, who is a consuming, purifying fire.

Sacred Fire: Torah from the Years of Fury (1939-1942) consists of commentaries on each weekly Torah portion. It also includes a number of lengthy sermons delivered on the major Jewish Festivals as well as a few discourses alluding to people loved and lost. Because writing is not permitted on the Sabbath, these "words of Torah" were transcribed from memory, after the Sabbath or festival had ended. Although the pages of Sacred Fire are not stained with the names of its author's tormentors, there are numerous references to historical events through which parallels can be drawn. Rabbi Shapira often refers, for example, to the binding of Isaac and the martyrdom of Rabbi Akiba. Sacred Fire forms a religious, spiritual response to the Holocaust that speaks from the heart of the darkness. In doing so, it may well form the basis for what could one day become Judaism's formal liturgical response to the events that occurred during those years of fury.
