4.0 out of 5 stars Intelligent, honest overview of the Rebbe and his movement, May 11, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: My Rebbe (Hardcover)
Unlike previous attempts at putting the Rebbe on paper, this book suffers from neither excited hyperbole nor an axe to grind. Rabbi Steinsaltz puts it all in this book, a highly readable, well-argued yet honest portrayal of the Rebbe and his movement. Steinsaltz doesn't fear controversy or questions - he clearly takes the approach of a modern Chassid, but displays his own perspective clearly as such. Individual Chassidim may find details of the book they disagree with, but that is to be expected. In the end, it is a well balanced synthesis of biography, history, philosophy and reflection.

An excellent insider's look at the Rebbe and the modern Chabad movement.
