The Chosen

Novel by Chaim Potok


It is the now-classic story of two fathers and two sons and the pressures on all of them to pursue the religion they share in the way that is best suited to each. And as the boys grow into young men, they discover in the other a lost spiritual brother, and a link to an unexplored world that neither had ever considered before. In effect, they exchange places, and find the peace that neither will ever retreat from again....
This is the odyssey from boyhood to manhood for two Jewish boys amidst the conflict between generations and religious traditions.
