Today in Tablet Magazine, Adam Kirsch considers a new book’s innovative argument: that the rise of secular political philosophy with Locke, Hobbes, and the rest was helped by Protestantism’s interest in Jewish law and government. Mideast columnist Lee Smith weighs the complex question of how Jews should feel about evangelical Christian support for Israel. Following up yesterday’s Vox Tablet podcast with contributing editor Judith Shulevitz on her new book, The Sabbath World, we look at how nine different authors—from Shalom Auslander to Philip Roth—have written about Shabbat. If you want a tenth example, catch The Scroll on a Friday.
