Here is an accessible introduction to the life and wisdom of the famous twelfth-century philosopher-physician Moses Maimonides, whose prolific writings on medical and religious issues, commentaries on Jewish texts, and writings on Jewish ethics and law profoundly influenced Judaism.
The Wisdom of Maimonides includes a biography; a section of selected teachings drawn from Maimonides' major works "The Guide for the Perplexed" and the "Mishneh Torah," as well as his other writings; and tales about Maimonides' colorful life as a court physician and rabbinic leader.
