In The Promise, a follow-up to The Chosen, we catch up with Reuven Malter as he is continuing his graduate education in the 1950s Jewish community of New York.

The Gift of Asher Lev (1997)

Spoilers for My Name is Asher Lev and this book below.Is there a plan? Does God have a plan or are we at the mercy of an uncaring universe where bad things happen to good people? The question of whether or not the universe is ordered permeates this book, though in a rather subtle way. The book...

I Am the Clay (1997)

“I Am the Clay” (Ballantine Books, 1992) is a difficult book to get through, even though the paperback is roughly 240 pages long. This is a powerful book about the futility of war through its victims. The country and the main characters are never named, which can help readers fill in the blanks...

Davita's Harp (1996)

Potok's use of recurrent images borders on overt symbolism, and yet retains an internal coherence beyond that of religious iconography or surrealist leaps by having his narrators tell you exactly what the images mean. This is probably what makes Davita's Harp a childrens' book, even thought it e...

The Chosen (1987)

I love how Chaim Potok is able to create a story about so many different things. There are dozens of topics within his books to discuss, enjoy and ponder, but he manages to twist and turn his story, so at its end, you get the Rubik's cube sides all neatly back to the same color.Like My Name Is As...
