Reviews

"Nahman is one of the more fascinating figures in the history of the Hasidic movement both because of his singular personality and because of the profound and uncompromising nature of his theological vision. The book's broad range of topics and new approaches make this volume a significant contribution to the scholarship on Rabbi Nahman." - Joel Hecker, Reconstructionist Rabbinical College
