Book Review: Rabbi Nachman's Stories

The times we are living in are filled with mystery. Is there anywhere we can search that will help us understand some of the secrets of life today?!

Rabbi Nachman taught that the greatest secrets of life can be found through the telling of “simple” stories. Stories that even a young child is able to enjoy. On the surface, stories seem fun and enjoyable. Inside, they contain the mysteries of life itself. Much like the entire first book of the Five Books of Moses – completely filled with stories of a variety of great men who are ultimately responsible for the revelation of monotheism in the world.

Rabbi Nachman was a master story teller. He is well known for 13 “lengthy” stories and dozens of others, each one filled with greater fantasy – than the next! You’ll hear about spiders and flies, about magic castles, about a master of prayer and some beggars. Most of all, Rabbi Nachman speaks about life itself – as it is lived day to day. Your life – and mine.

These beautiful stories were translated by Rabbi Aryeh Kaplan. Included at the bottom of each page is a masterful commentary put together from a variety of authoritative sources.

If it’s the mysteries of life you’re after, you’ll find them hidden in this book. Of course, one reading may not be sufficient, and you may have to keep returning many more times. With 552 pages of “entertainment” available, it’s sure to keep you busy for hours on end!

It’s really a must for every Jewish home. You don’t have to be a scholar to read it – it’s so simple to read! And if you are a scholar, you’ll need years to master its contents.

Don’t wait another moment.
