The Cole Trilogy: The Physician, Shaman, and Matters of Choice

It might be that we have such unrealistically high standards for the clergy, Catholic, Protestant, Evangelical, Jewish, as a whole that I found Gordon’s rabbi and his wife to be not particularly likable or relatable. Books by Noah Gordon. Any one else agree.

Would the nosh rights aspects of this be different for the intervening years? Please try again later. Muy bueno, como el resto de libros de Noah Gordon. Reading The Rabbi was a shock, in comparison. It was a nice story, but again, I couldn’t figure out why a fictional rabbi’s life deserved an entire book.

Michael Kind was a rabbi, but he was also a man. How can a Jew, and a Rabbi at that even a Reform Rabbi be so disconnected emotionally from the Holocaust?

It is a story of a true life and it really pulls you into the struggles of the character. This novel is a well-written and evolved story of a very human person who led a life more influential than he himself thought. The link with his grandfather and some months study is not enough to explain why he suddenly decides to become a Rabbi. Favored to be named associate chief of medicine at a Boston hospital, she is married to a surgeon and owns a trophy residence in Cambridge as well as a summer house.


Hay partes emotivas y ola lectura es agradable, pero no es lo mejor de Gordon. Dec 10, Taryn Fink rated it liked it. First, Michael Kind’s decision to become a Rabbi come out of nowhere – the only clue being the name of the book. I will say, though, that the traveling salesman rabbi life was captured quite nicely and I got a kick out of his wife saying at every new home they moved into – oh, I can see us staying here forever!

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. I discovered Noah Gordon a few months ago. Want to Read saving….

Different choices might have been happier choices but that gorson have held my interest.

I loved Gordon’s 11th century story through Europe to an Arab medical school in Ispahan, Persia where The Physician studies under the immortal physician Avicenna. Michael meets, falls in love with and marries a minister’s daughter who converts to Judaism.

I wouldn’t recommend it. In the wilderness he befriends the starving remnants of the Sauk tribe, who have fled their reservation.
