Heavenly Torah: As Refracted Through the Generations (2005)

This work is a translation (with commentary for the reader) of Heschel’s three-volume work in Hebrew on the different theologies (Torah Min Hashamayim) of the Rabbis of the Talmudic period and how those theologies lived on and confronted one another in later periods. The first two volumes of the original work were published in 1962 and 1965, respectively. The third Hebrew volume was published posthumously in 1990. The English translation by Rabbi Gordon Tucker was published in 2005.
