To Live and Live AgainAn Overview of Techiyas HaMeisim -- The Resurrection of the Dead -- Based on the Classical Sources and the Teachings of Chabad Chassidism
Dubov, Nissan Dovid
Just as our mortal eyes cannot look further back than the day we were born, they cannot see further ahead than a certain other day in our physical lifetimes. Little wonder, then, that whenever we encounter a word about that uncharted future from the mouth of one of our Sages or Rebbeim, whose telescopic eyes (so to speak) have been shown its secrets, every such teaching is precious. Besides, for many Jews today, the Talmudic phrase hilchesa liMeshiach ("a law for the Days of Mashiach") no longer speaks of an era that is so far ahead that it becomes irrelevant and inconceivable: it speaks of an era that the Lubavitcher Rebbe has assured us is just around the corner.
Hence the extensive interest that this book has already aroused.
The research for this pioneering work -- written and annotated by Rabbi Nissan Dovid Dubov, of Wimbledon, England -- gleans from the Tanach, Talmud, Midrash, Halachah, Kabbalah and Chassidus, and echoes the underlying harmony of these seemingly diverse disciplines as repeatedly demonstrated in the published talks and letters of the Lubavitcher Rebbe.
This volume includes the full translated text of two related chassidic discourses first delivered by the Rebbe: "To Understand the Concept of Techiyas HaMeisim, the Resurrection of the Dead," and "All Israel Have a Share in the World to Come."
