Arthur Green, a modern master of Jewish thought, explores the life and thought of Rabbi Levi Yits?ak, one of the towering, formative figures in early Hasidism. In Green’s lucid presentation, Levi Yits?ak emerges as a mystic, but also a realist who faces the fact that we live in a world seemingly not guided by divine will. Boldly, Levi Yitshak claims that a righteous individual can actually implant a new will within God. A fascinating, profound book.
