              Lessons we learn from Jonah The book of Jonah stands unique among the biblical books of theprophets because it is almost entirely narrative. And in contrast to allthe other prophets, who are portrayed as admirable individuals whobravely speak God's word, Jonah stands out as flawe...d, fleeing fromGod. We are drawn to Jonah because God gives him an opportunityto redeem himself, and his experience inspires us to find our ownsecond chances-and our own paths to meaningful growth.Jonah and the Meaning of Our Lives draws on commentaries of Rashi,Ibn Ezra, Kimchi, Abarbanel, and the Malbim as well as contemporaryculture and personal experiences to reveal the hidden meanings ofthis perplexing biblical story. In so doing, it explores many of thelarger questions and topics we face, including human nature, ourrelationship with God, and how we understand ourselves and leadour lives. Rabbi Steven Bob's verse-by-verse commentary intimatelyconnects the ancient wisdom of the text with the reality of our ownlives, providing us with inspiration and guidance.

              In this original study, noted scholar and theologian David Hartman discusses the relation between Maimonides' halakhic writings and The Guide of the Perplexed--a connection much closer than is generally supposed. Maimonides: Torah and Philosophic Quest demonstrates that Maimonide...s' total philosophic endeavour was an attempt to show how the free search for truth, established through the study of logic, physics, and metaphysics, can live harmoniously with a way of life defined by the normative traditions of Judaism.
