Acquainting readers with certain literary as well as intellectual and psychological aspects of Jewish thought, life, and religious experience, the six legends and tales in Manna and Mystery are rich in the Jewish themes of mystical love, endurance, thirst for learning, and persecution. Knapp's essays open the modern consciousness to their ancient insights and wisdom, while seeking the treasure of subjectivity and soulfulness.
