If Telushkins book is accurate,it’s is perhaps a bigger zchus than Steinsaltz..Its not difficult for a committed Chabadnik to write about the Rebbe..

Toward a Meaningful Life

Will be interesting to see how they will both compare to the supreme masterpiece Toward a Meaningful Life by chozer and maniach Rabbi Simon Jacobson

Will the book be in English?

The book cover suggests that it will be written in English. Is that the case?

How did you read Telushkin’s book its not out yet, they are still only available for pre-order?

to number one

you are correct. nobody is putting down telushkin
but it is not b’kavodik to call Steinzalt’s book “second” book.
Additionally you point out correctly that one is a true chossid while the other is an admirer.

STEINSALTZ STANDS ALONE
March 27, 2014 12:38 am

You can’t compare both books. Rabbi Steinsaltz stands alone, in his supreme category, on all level: alone in his genius, alone in his chassidishkeit and unique kesher with the Rebbe, alone in his sensitivity, alone in his penetrating perception of every detail – from the smallest to the greatest. If collive can’t make this point, history will.

Both books

I am looking forward to reading both books. I am sure the will both offer unique and
different perspectives.

Was going to say something similar. Dear collive editors, please put a little more consideration on the text of this article and rephrase accordingly.

I read telushkins book and he has done a very nice job. He used JEM interviews plus many other good sources to compile his book. I believe it will be very accepted, I found it to be on par with rebbes army in some ways, which was a very nice book to.

AWESOME

Great Lecture!

I attended that fantastic lecture at Chabad of Westmount. Really an honor and a privilege!

Steinsaltz is number 1

WIth all due respect, how can you compare a book written by Telushkin to a book by Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz-Even Israel? There is absolutely no comparison. The former, Telushkin is a conservadox Admirer of the Rebb and the latter, Steinsaltz is a chassid, a teacher of chassidus and a world renowned brilliant Torah scholar.
This book has been years and years in writing. To call it ” a second book” is inaccurate and disrespectful.
Thanks
