    The Biblical Outlook presents important topics in Jewish philosophy by using a unique approach based entirely upon the books of the Hebrew Bible (along with halachic clarifications of the Talmudic sages).
    Among the topics covered are God's characteristics, creation and providence, revelation, God's demands upon human beings, reward and punishment, repentance and forgiveness, prayer, God's intervention in history, and the End of Days.

    Praise for The Biblical Outlook:
    "Anyone who wants to understand the basis and the essence of the Torah should read this book carefully- The book can be seen as a virtual encyclopedia of Jewish philosophy."
