Light and Fire of the Baal Shem Tov.
The light and fire of the Baal Shem Tov.
Continuum Publishing Group
Buxbaum is a maggid, a traditional Jewish inspirational speaker and storyteller. Here he collects stories about Baal Shem Tov (1700-60) that he finds to portray the great and holy figure adequately. They provide not a biography, he says, but a life-in-stories, and the arrangement corresponds to the stages of his life and teachings.
