About the Author
Yaakov Shapiro grew up in Conservative, Modern Orthodox, Lithuanian-Charedi and Chabad-Chasidic Jewish schools, earning rabbinical ordination in the latter. A nine-year researcher, translator, writer and filmmaker for Chabad-Lubavitch’s media wing, he is currently spending his days in the world of business. But he continues to spend the nights researching and writing on areas of Jewish belief that can, and have, put sincere students of Torah at risk – psychologically, emotionally, physically, and therefore spiritually – with the confident belief that exhaustive source-textual analysis and reexamined translation will uncover a balanced, humane understanding of the Creator’s plan for Its creation.

It carries no rabbinical "haskamot" (approvals) and is not alone in this when it comes to this subject, but among the many quoted authorities in the third edition is a Hebrew book by Rav Eliezer Melamed who is one of the leading go-to Rabbis for serious halachic erudition in the 21st century, at least for uncompromising but non Haredi Jews in Israel. The author says, and I heartily agree, that an English translation of Rav Melamed's book would be timely.
