Story of Our Lives: An Epic Quest for the Soul of our Tradition by Yaakov Klein
While on a journey, I told a story. Whoever heard it had a thought of repentance.
WITH THESE TIMELESS words, Rebbe Nachman of Breslov zya introduced The Lost Princess, the story that would ultimately become the most famous of his legendary tales.
In his groundbreaking book, The Story of Our Lives, R’ Yaakov Klein reveals how Rebbe Nachman’s remarkable short story contains the seeds of a unique path to avodas Hashem tailor-made for our wondrous generation.
A veritable textbook on the theological revolution of Chassidus and its relevance to the challenges of the modern era, this seminal work presents a compelling argument for the need to dig deeper in our individual and communal engagement with avodas Hashem.
Expansive, thorough, and well-sourced, this book’s systematic presentation of many foundational concepts in penimiyus haTorah will excite the mind just as the 66-life lessons explicated in its pages are sure to uplift, encourage, and inspire. Most significantly, this book deepens and broadens the thought of repentance this story inspires, introducing the reader to a transformative vision of the spiritual journey.
