520    "As a scholar of Jewish law, a physician, and a 
       philosopher, Maimonides was a singular figure. His work in
       extracting all the commanding precepts of Jewish law from 
       the Hebrew Bible and the Talmud, interpreting and 
       commenting on them, and translating them into terms that 
       would allow students to lead sound Jewish lives became the
       model for translating God's word into a language 
       comprehensible by all. His work in medicine--which brought
       him such fame that he became Saladin's personal physician-
       -was driven almost entirely by reason and observation. In 
       this biography, Alberto Manguel examines the question of 
       Maimonides' universal appeal--he was celebrated by Jews, 
       Arabs, and Christians alike. In our time, when the need 
       for rationality and recognition of the truth is more vital
       than ever, Maimonides can help us find strategies to 
       survive with dignity in an uncertain world." --Provided by
