The Personhood of God
Yochanan Muffs
In accessible terms and with startling insights, renowned Bible scholar Dr. Yochanan Muffs examines the anthropomorphic evolution of the Divine Image – from creator of the cosmos to God the father, the husband, the king, the ultimate master – and how these different images of God have shaped our faith and world view. Muffs also examines how expressions of divine power, divine will and divine love throughout the Bible have helped develop the contemporary human condition and our enriching dialectic between faith and doubt.

By Way of Truth: Nahmanides and the Creation of Tradition

This book provides a systematic and broad picture of Nahmanide`s work, encompassing his halachic outlook, his approach to central topics in Jewish thought of the Middle Ages and the secret realm.

Politics and the Limits of Law
Menachem Lorberbaum
Can Jewish law organize a society? What is the relationship between rabbis and community and between Jewish law and the Jewish state? This book examines the attitudes to these questions of the legal giants in Spain of the Middle Ages: Maimonidies, Nahmanides and others. Lorberbaum claims that these legal giants firmly believed that as a legal system Jewish law does not as have the appropriate tools to organize political society. These limits of Jewish law explain the necessity of Israeli political rule for ensuring the existence of a Jewish society loyal to Jewish law.
