Rarely, if ever, has a single volume contained so many fundamental principles of Jewish faith and ehtics. This volume including the Rambam's Thirteen Principles of Faith, Shemoneh Perakim-his classic work of ethics, and his commentary to Pirkei Avot, serves as an invaluable resource for the scholar and a comprehensive introduction for a beginner. In these works, the Rambam outlines his fundamental set of beliefs and his guidelines for purpose-oriented action in clear and succinct terms. Conscious that his ideas are unique, and unabashed by the criticism they might draw, the Rambam challenges his readers to think objectively, and to have their thoughts control their deeds. With ideas as currently relevant as those of contemporary psychology and as eternally true as those of his works of halachah, the Rambam presents us with a guide to our relationship with God, direction in relating to others, and insight into understanding ourselves. The translation, crisp, lucid, and astute, and the concise, but inclusive commentary provide an excellent showcase for this classic text.
