Scult is the author of The Radical American Judaism of Mordecai M. Kaplan. Drawing on Kaplan's 27-volume diary, Scult describes the development of Kaplan's radical theology in dialogue with the thinkers and writers who mattered to him most, from Spinoza to Emerson and from Ahad Ha-Am and Matthew Arnold to Felix Adler, John Dewey, and Abraham Joshua Heschel.
