Dave was lost in the forest. He simply didn’t know how to read the map. The trees all looked alike to him and no matter how many times he tried finding his way out, he just ended up back in the same spot – having walked in circles. He was terrified of having to spend the night in the forest.
Suddenly, to his great relief, another hiker came along. This person showed him how to read the map and which markers to look out for. The hiker moved on but this little bit of help made all the difference. He now knew what to look for and how to follow the trail. Before long, he found himself out of the forest.
Hashem has placed us in the forest of life. Sometimes, we get lost. We forget how to read the map. This fascinating book was designed to do just that. This incredible book helps each of us lead the life we really want to lead. Empowerment is… empowering!
“I…have been duly impressed by the author’s dedication to highlighting a genuine Torah approach to many of the questions asked by people today. In down-to-earth and simple language, the author makes it clear how Torah and its commentaries provide clear guidance for many of the issues that perplex today’s generation…Ultimately, the greatest compliment one can pay a Torah thinker is by saying that they have truly said nothing new. The author’s insights in this book, while presented in an original and creative manner, are not new at all. So while the book contains a plethora of contemporary anecdotes, references, and scenarios that will put the modern era at ease, the basic ideas being expressed are timeless.”
