A medieval philosopher whose vision covered an extensive range, he created a method of mediating between revelation and reason that laid the groundwork for a rational, philosophically sophisticated Judaism.

He also provided an approach to biblical interpretation and philosophy that remains relevant for people of all faiths who follow a religion based on sacred text and oral interpretation.In this accessible examination of Maimonides s theological and philosophical teachings, Rabbi Marc D. Angel opens up for us Maimonides s views on the nature of God, providence, prophecy, free will, human nature, repentance and more. He explores basic concepts of faith that Maimonides posits must serve as the basis for proper religious life.

He also examines Maimonides s insights on reward and punishment, messianic days, the world to come and other tenets of Jewish faith.Now you can experience the wisdom of Maimonides even if you have no previous knowledge of Judaism or Jewish philosophy. SkyLight Illuminations provides insightful yet unobtrusive commentary that reveals why Maimonides s teachings continue to have profound relevance to those seeking an intellectually vibrant understanding of Judaism.
