Rabbi Moses Maimonides (1135-1204), known as Rambam, is widely known as a profound philosopher and authoritative legal scholar. However, Rambam¢‚¬„¢s contributions are not merely remnants of medieval scholarship but a vibrant legacy that gives compelling guidance in modern man¢‚¬„¢s spiritual search. In this book, leading scholars present surveys of Rambam¢‚¬„¢s thinking and his impact on Judaism, and apply Rambam¢‚¬„¢s approach to various issues of critical contemporary importance.

The opening essay in the book is by the late Professor Isadore Twersky, dean of intellectual historians working on Rambam, and himself a role model for the combination of Torah and academic scholarship. His subject is the growth of Rambam¢‚¬„¢s reputation and his impact on later Torah scholarship. Rabbi Norman Lamm, for so many years a productive scholar and leader of American Orthodoxy, discusses a question central to religious life¢‚¬€�the love of God¢‚¬€�drawing on Rambam¢‚¬„¢s halakhic works and the Guide. Professor Arthur Hyman, who occupies a prominent place among contemporary interpreters of Maimonides¢‚¬„¢ philosophy, surveys, with his customary concision and clarity, the broad options in the academic scholarship of the 20th century.
