About this title


Arthur Green is the Irving Brudnick Professor of Jewish Theology and Mysticism and Rector of the Rabbinical School at Hebrew College in Newton Center, Massachusetts. A prolific author, Dr. Green has published Ehyeh: A Kabbalah for Tomorrow and A Guide to the Zohar. "In this brilliant book, which can be read for joy and yet has all the qualities of high scholarship, Arthur Green explains why the place of the Bratslaver Master cannot be filled except by his immortal leadership." -Journal of Ecumenical Studies "Tormented Master is a major triumph." -Journal of Religion "This splendid biography of the illustrious Hasidic leader, Rabbi Nahman of Bratslav, is testimony to the maturation of American Jewish Studies. On every significant count-method, depth, knowledge, style, organization, sophistication-it is a triumph. No one seriously interested in Hasidism can afford to miss this volume." -Sh'ma
