The Thirteen Principles of Faith: A Chasidic Viewpoint brings readers a fascinating Chasidic analysis and interpretation of the Rambam¿s (Maimonides) Thirteen Principles of Faith. These profound principles have long been considered the basic and fundamental tenets of Judaism. As each chapter progresses through the thirteen principles, readers will discover how the Rambam¿s classic work has come to define man¿s relationship to G-d and the Torah, and the application of each principle as a way of life.
Maimonides' thirteen principles, which he described as the roots and foundations of the Jewish religion, first appeared in his Commentary on the Mishnah as an introduction to the final chapter of the tractate Sanhedrin. They were subsequently abbreviated and were later appended to many versions of the daily prayer book. To this day, they constitute one of the clearest statements of Jewish belief ever written. In chasidic literature, the thirteen principles have received a scholarly and methodical analysis. This volume is based on the teachings and writings of several of the most prominent chasidic masters, notably those of the Lubavitch dynasty. Each principle is treated as a meditation, a soul-illuminating insight into the very depths of one's being, the nature of God and His teachings, and the Torah. This work is not an exposition but rather an expedition into the thirteen principles of faith. Chasidic philosophy views all of Torah as a manifestation of God Himself. Thus the thirteen principles are not merely descriptive, a philosophical statement of lofty Jewish ideals. Their intention is experiential: they are intended to be an encounter with ourselves, with the axioms upon which we base our lives, with the wisdom of God, and ultimately, as a happy encounter with God Himself.

Why do bad things happen to seemingly good people? Why does God allow Christians to go through storms others don't? What is meant by God's principle of opposites? Why does God answer prayer at a time that is least expected? What was the secret in David's heart that attracted and drew God? What are principles Christians can learn that attract and move God? What is the culture in Heaven? What is time in Heaven? What is God's "No-Fly Zone," where everyone is safe from all spritual attacks? What's ahead, what goal is God steadily and confidently moving toward? The answers might suprise you. All these and many more of God's principles are discussed in detail in this book. These were just some of the questions the author had when he was diagnosed with advanced stage cancer only a year after he became a Christian. He was delivered from this illness, but he remained troubled because he lived, while many others did not. Over 30 years passed. Then, seemingly overnight, God answered and led the author to principles He works by. A book was never planned. But as the author began to write, he found three major principles. Over a three-year period, the author felt inspired to add supporting principles under each of the main principles. The author then began to see a pattern in the principles, where each supported the other. And when combined, these principles taught the author how God works using some or all of the principles in every life situation. All the principles are carefully supported by scripture. God would also reveal to the author how these principles began when he was orphaned at three years old, immediately at his mother's death, and without his knowledge. As the author gave over to God the final desires of his heart, God gave back to him answers that had been a mystery about his mother and how God was moving to bring an unexpected spiritual homecoming with her. This book was written to give you peace and understanding as you go through trials. Our sovereign God is at work in your life, many times without your knowledge. www.GodOfPrinciple.com
