Jimi Calhoun is originally from the San Francisco Bay Area. After demonstrating an aptitude to play several musical instruments he settled on the bass guitar and embarked on a career path that would take him around the world. Jimi's spiritual odyssey included a couple of brief stops to study Buddhism and Metaphysics. Jimi also studied martial arts which he continues to incorporate into his spiritual disciplines to this day. Jimi’s spiritual quest would ultimately lead him to return to his Christian roots. He became an ordained minister which would again lead him to travel around the world - this time not as a rock and roll musician, but as a messenger of God’s love for people, and an instrument of healing between them. Rabbi Shmuley Boteach is one of the world’s leading relationship experts and spiritual authorities. His twenty-two books have been bestsellers in seventeen languages, and his award-winning syndicated column is read by a global audience of millions. He is the host of TLC’s award-winning Shalom in the Home and was Oprah Winfrey’s love, marriage, and parenting expert on Oprah and Friends. He served for eleven years as rabbi at Oxford University, where he built the Oxford L’Chaim Society into the University’s second largest student organization. Today, Newsweek calls him the most famous rabbi in America. Our culture is showing the cracks of a growing fracture.But as Rabbi Shmuley Boteach reveals in his new book,Renewal, our society can made whole again when we as individuals make the choice to live a life based on values. For too long, conversations about values have been derailed by political movements trying to score points over hot-button issues like gay marriage or abortion. Boteach, one of our wisest and most respected counselors and spiritual experts, reaches deep into our history and into our shared religious legacy to revive the key universal values of Judaism for our struggling world.
