Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Accessible and authoritative…. Gracefully traces the contours of Maimonides's attempt to liberate Judaism from particularism and obscurantism. A wonderful and refreshing achievement."
Dr. Menachem Kellner, Department of Jewish History and Thought, University of Haifa; author, Must a Jew Believe Anything?

"Illuminates for us new ways of perceiving Maimonides's halakhic, intellectual and spiritual understanding of Judaism … and the meaning we can derive for our own lives."
Dr. Adena K. Berkowitz, scholar in residence, Kol HaNeshamah, New York City

“An invaluable new translation … a valuable overview of Maimonides’s theological thought [and] a very helpful, lucid commentary that makes the work accessible.”
Dr. Howard Wettstein, editor, Midwest Studies in Philosophy; professor of philosophy, University of California

“Elegant, profound, accessible and challenging. Those who wish to walk the Golden Mean of Jewish tradition, while yet being drawn into a rational and faith-filled consideration of … our shared obligation to gain access both to human wisdom and Divine truth would do well to read and re-read this spiritual gem.”
Rabbi Stanley M. Davids, DD, rabbi emeritus, Temple Emanu-El, Atlanta, Georgia

“[A] lucid and important book … that brings the full spectrum of the teachings of the great Maimonides within the grasp of any Jew hoping to deepen their understanding and practice of their faith. Beautifully written and beautifully explained.”
Naomi Ragen, author, The Tenth Song and other bestselling novels

“Brings freshness and insight to [these] foundational theological and philosophical texts…. An invaluable new resource for another generation of those seeking to understand the inextricable relationships that exist between faith and reason.”
The Rev. Walter J. Smith, SJ, PhD, president and CEO, HealthCare Chaplaincy, New York City
