The Light and Fire of the Baal Shem Tov, by Yitzhak Buxbaum
Rabbi Israel Baal Shem Tov is one of the greatest Jewish teachers of all time and the inspiration for much of what is alive today in Judaism, in all the denominations. Yet amazingly, this is the first comprehensive book in English about his life!
Yitzhak Buxbaum has researched everything available from hasidic and academic sources, in Hebrew and English. He has collected tales, teachings, and parables to produce a wonderful, inspiring "life-story." The book is not just "about" the Besht but a spiritual "scripture," like something written centuries ago. Accessible to everyone, it contains material that will be new to the most knowledgeable reader.
