Maimonides was the greatest Jewish philosopher and legal scholar of the medieval period, a towering figure who has had a profound and lasting influence on Jewish law, philosophy, and religious consciousness. This book provides a comprehensive and accessible introduction to his life and work, revealing how his philosophical sensibility and outlook informed his interpretation of Jewish tradition. Moshe Halbertal vividly describes Maimonides's childhood in Muslim Spain, his family's flight to North Africa to escape persecution, and their eventual resettling in Egypt. He draws on Maimonides's letters and the testimonies of his contemporaries, both Muslims and Jews, to offer new insights into his personality and the circumstances that shaped his thinking. Halbertal then turns to Maimonides's legal and philosophical work, analyzing his three great books--"Commentary on the Mishnah," the "Mishneh Torah," and the "Guide of the Perplexed." He discusses Maimonides's battle against all attempts to personify God, his conviction that God's presence in the world is mediated through the natural order rather than through miracles, and his locating of philosophy and science at the summit of the religious life of Torah. Halbertal examines Maimonides's philosophical positions on fundamental questions such as the nature and limits of religious language, creation and nature, prophecy, providence, the problem of evil, and the meaning of the commandments. A stunning achievement, "Maimonides" offers an unparalleled look at the life and thought of this important Jewish philosopher, scholar, and theologian.

    Thanks for writing. We are not sponsored by Dickies or Canon, and would definitely share that if the video was sponsored. We made that video on our own accord, out of passion. We wanted to share with others the life we live to inspire. James wears that mechanic's outfit when he's doing work on the bus, so his other clothes don't get ruined, and we simply liked that shot of him grabbing a tool. We like Canon gear, but have never worked with them or received compensation from them. We apologize for the confusion; we are always open about when a photo of ours is sponsored, and never hide things like that; transparency is best.

    Hi Jeremy! My husband and I are looking to expand our personal training and nutrition consultation business by offering online training and consultation aside from in person training. I've been researching what website builder would be best if we were to have people pay for our online virtual personal training and consultation using paypal. What website builder would you recommend? Is there a website builder you know of that allows for virtual training and paypal payments? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!

      Too bad if you have issues with your platform you are SOL when it comes to support. CC processing isn't working intermittently and after 48 hours of having a ticket open I have yet to hear from your support staff.
