A review of the books, American Rabbi: The Life and Thought of Jacob B. Agus and The Essential Agus: The Writings of Jacob B. Agus by Steven T. Katz, is presented. In these two volumes, Katz presents a significant contribution to the literature of modern Jewish thought in America. In the first book, he gathers together a series of papers on various aspects of Jacob Agus' thought as well as some personal reminiscences. As with all such collections, there is a certain amount of overlap among the various essays, but taken as a whole they provide a concise summary of the multiple facets of Agus' astonishing accomplishments.
