The Rebbe on Prophecy

There is a short description and recommendations by three known (non-Chabad) authors (Lawrence Schiffman, Dan Cohn-Sherbok, Arthur Kurzweil) about the newly published book at chabad.info:

This volume brings together classical Jewish discussion of Maimonides’ sixth and seventh principles dealing with the phenomenon of prophecy and the prophecy of Moses.  Gathered here are the views of classical Jewish thinkers on the issues raised by Maimonides and the detailed discussions of these questions by the Lubavitcher Rebbe.
The combination of this material with Rabbi Chaim Miller’s pedagogical, analytical and translation skills presents the reader with an entrée into the lively dialogue on Jewish theological issues that has bridged the difficult gap between rational philosophy and a religion of faith for Jews throughout the ages.
