I picked up this book on a whim, and now I can't stop recommending it to everyone I meet! In this book, Ellie Weisel gives a personalized history of Hasidism. Using his own memories and insights, plus whatever tales and legends he finds most interesting, he takes us through Hasidism from its beginning through a lot of the Hasidic masters. The subject is interesting by itself, especially since many of the legends are profound or funny, and Mr. Weisel's wonderful writing style is the perfect vehicle for it. Buy and read this book!

I picked this up on a whim from the library, and found it so engrossing that I had to order my own copy. What a wonderful book - so inspiring in its humanity. I would recommend it to anyone.

Eli Wiesel is a master communicator and this combining of two of his works enables one to purchase a complete set on his chronological biographies of the early Chasidic Masters. As one can expect from this author he gets to the heart and spirit of this important area of Jewish belief.

Read this for incredible (true) stories about the various Hassidic Masters, and find out how modern many of them were, unlike some of their present day adherents who seem to have frozen the living movement in a time warp. By all means read Buber's sayings etc afterwards. If you need to.

I am not a member of the Jewish Faith but do have a great respect for all things Jewish and me a Gentile feel that I have much that can be learnt from reading and looking at such books as this a Souls on Fire. The author takes us on a personal journey of the Hasidim masters. The story telling is good, the stories themselves have much to say.
I struggle to put this book down.
Thank you.
