Moses Maimonides on Teshuvah: The Ways of Repentance, A New Translation and Commentary
Moses Maimonides (1135-1204) was one of the greatest minds the Jewish people ever produced in over three thousand years of recorded history. Philosopher, physician and rabbi, he was the author of classics such as the Guide to the Perplexed and the massive multi-volume Mishneh Torah, an encyclopedic treatment of the entirety of Jewish Law. This work is a translation of one of the books in that great work, Maimonides' Laws of Repentance, with a modern commentary by Dr. Henry Abramson.
Moses Maimonides on Teshuvah covers both the practical aspects of personal self-transformation as well as related philosophical issues such as life after death, the World to Come, and the question of free will versus determinism. This text is essential for students of Jewish thought and all who are interested in spiritual growth.
Dr. Henry Abramson is Dean of Academic Affairs and Student Services at Touro College South in Miami Beach, Florida. He holds a PhD in History, and has held visiting appointments and post-doctoral fellowships at Cornell, Harvard, Oxford and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He is the author of several books on Jewish history and thought, most recently iThe Sea of Talmud: A Brief and Personal Introduction (Smashwords, 2012).
