Description
 
“It is more important to me to explain a [philosophical] principlethan any other thing that I teach.” (Rambam, Mishna Berachot, 9:7)

Illuminating Jewish Thought is a contemporary, multi-volume series that surveys the theological foundations of Jewish faith. With the approach and scope of a master educator for undergraduate and rabbinical students at Yeshiva University, Rabbi Wiederblank brings together a wide array of Jewish texts ranging from philosophi­cal to Kabbalistic, ancient to modern, in a clear and accessible source book.

In this volume, the author shows the richness of the Jewish scholastic tradition relat­ing to three fundamental yet esoteric topics: free will, the afterlife, and the messianic era. Primary sources are presented in their original language with modern English translation, enabling readers to analyze the texts independently, while the author il­luminates and contextualizes these complex concepts. Altogether, Illuminating Jewish Thought reveals the bedrock on which lies the nexus of Jewish belief and practice.
