Perhaps no Jewish thinker has had a more significant impact on Jewish religious thought than Moses Maimonides (1138 CE–1204 CE). A medieval philosopher whose vision covered an extensive range, he created a method of mediating between revelation and reason that laid the groundwork for a rational, philosophically sophisticated Judaism. In this accessible examination of Maimonides’ theological and philosophical teachings, Rabbi Marc D. Angel opens up Maimonides’ views on the nature of God, providence, prophecy, free will, human nature, repentance and more. He explores basic concepts of faith that Maimonides posits must serve as the basis for proper religious life. He also examines Maimonides’ insights on reward and punishment, messianic days, the world to come, and other tenets of Jewish faith.
