God’s Voice from the Void: Old and New Studies in Bratslav Hasidim, suffers from a lack of uniformity that mars the book’s presentation and overall aim.
This book is overwhelming for the scholar of Judaism exposed to recent trends in interpreting texts. So, we get an essay on androgyny in Rebbe Nachman’s work, and an essay on Rebbe Nachman’s peppered with the words praxis, trope and reconstruction.
So, this is a highly specialized and stylized treatment of Rebbe Nachman and Bratslav. It is not for everyone, and even the essays not written in an abundance of academic jargon, such as the one that details the purported differences between Chabad and Bratslav, is very much wrong on most of its details.
