As an unintended result of its success, the movement now struggles with an identity crisis brought on by its liberal theology.

Kaplan asks, can Reform Judaism continue to thrive? Can it be broadly inclusive and still be uniquely and authentically Jewish? Addressing the issues that have confronted the movement—including the ordination of women, acceptance of homosexuality, the problem of assimilation, the question of rabbinic officiation at intermarriages, the struggle for acceptance in Israel, and others—Kaplan sheds light on the connection between Reform ideology and cultural realities. He unflinchingly, yet optimistically, assesses the movements future and cautions that stormy weather may be ahead.
