The Sages always told stories to convey some of the deepest secrets about God and His relation to the creation.
Rebbe Nachman practiced this ancient method to perfection. More elaborate than any of his previous teachings, the stories are fast-moving, richly structured and filled with penetrating insights -- while spellbinding and entertaining.
Rabbi Kaplan's translation is accompanied by a masterful commentary drawn from the works of Rebbe Nachman's pupils.
For the first time the English-speaking reader has access to authentic interpretations of the stories.
