Reviews - What do customers think about The Book of Direction to the Duties of the Heart?

Scholarly translation from the original Arabic  Dec 8, 1998
Noted scholar Menachem Mansoor makes an extremely valuable addition to the wealth of literature on Bachya ben Yosef ibn Pakuda's extensively-studied treatise on spirituality and ethical behavior. Whereas most extant popular translations are taken from Ibn Tibbon's definitive Hebrew translation, Mansoor works from the recovered Arabic version -- the language in which Bachya wrote. The result is a deeper and richer understanding of the subtleties of this already remarkable work.
