From the Publisher. This monument of rabbinical exegesis written at the end of the 12th century has exerted an immense and continuing influence upon Jewish thought. Its aim is to liberate people from the tormenting perplexities arising from their understanding of the Bible according only to its literal meaning.

In The Guide for the Perplexed, Maimonides lays out a way of thinking, particularly about God that I find useful, especially in the case of my continuing search for ineffability in the context of the Western pantheon of ideality.
