This book provides a remarkable insight into the richly varied life of a much-respected Rabbi and high-profile author.
Dr Rudolph (Rudy) Brasch's story abounds with anecdotes, traveller's tales, fascinating facts and colourful recollections from places he has visited and worked in around the world. He not only gives of his knowledge and philosophy, but also of his humour and humanity.
For many years Dr Brasch has been roving the world: geographically, intellectually and ecumenically. His experiences include working as a "Flying Bomb Padre" during the Blitz in London and leading congregations in Berlin, London, Dublin, Johannesburg, Sydney and Alabama. He has attended a voodoo session in Brazil, lived with a psychic cat, spent Christmas night at a monastery in Ireland, travelled extensively to research and promote his books, and acquired scars and fractures in far-flung countries.
There are so many other adventures, often joyous, sometimes sad, but no event was more important than meeting the person who would become his constant companion and most honest critic, his wife, Li. Together they have seen so much of the world, its people and cultures. Let Dr Brasch tell you about it . . .
