Almost 900 years ago, Moses Maimonides wrote Guide for the Perplexed, addressing some of the most difficult theological and philosophical questions ever asked—questions the world is still asking. Likely written to help a student understand the Merkabah narrative, or the chariot of Ezekiel, Maimonides’ text pushed theology and philosophy to discuss the origins and timeline of the universe, the nature of evil, and intelligent design. The Guide for the Perplexed is divided into three books, examining the nature of God, natural philosophy, creation theories, angels and prophecy, the Merkabah narrative, and the 613 laws of the Pentateuch. Maimonides engaged with Jewish, Islamic, and ancient Greek philosophers to construct this highly influential text, challenging Aristotle and others with scriptural and physical evidence.
