Born and educated in the United States, Menachem Kellner (Ph.D., Washington University in St. Louis, 1973) has lived in Israel for the last 30 years. Author, editor, or translator of 16 books and over 100 scholarly articles, Kellner's most recent books include Science in the Bet Midrash and Maimonides' Confrontation with Mysticism (2006).
"The essays in this book are bold, clear, and authoritative. Anyone interested in Maimonides or the relation between science and religion will want to read them closely and then go back and read them again."--Kenneth Seeskin, Professor of Philosophy, Professor of Religion, Philip M. and Ethel Klutznick Professor of Jewish Civilization, Northwestern University; Editor of the SUNY Press series in Jewish Philosophy "Menachem Kellner's Science in the Bet Midrash: Studies in Maimonides (Academic Studies Press) is a collection of previously published English essays, organized around 4 major themes: Approaches to the Study of Maimonides; Religious Faith and Dogma; Science and Torah; and Universalism. Fans of Kellner's writings, including myself, will surely recognize that these themes (particularly dogma and universalism) were also the subject of some of his acclaimed (and sometimes controversial) books. Those who have read those books may find some of the articles superfluous (sometimes they reflect earlier drafts, other times slight amendments or clarifications), but they remain probing and stimulating. The articles are intended for the scholarly or sophisticated lay reader. "--Shlomo Brody "Tradition Online " "Professor Menachem Kellner is an expert on Maimonides. He writes clearly and logically in easy to read and vibrant language..."--Dr. Israel Drazin "The Jewish Eye "
