The Baal Shem Tov taught that "G-d loves every Jew like a father loves a son born to him in his old age." Indeed, His love for us surpasses a father`s love. It is only that we, limited mortals that we are, have no better terms to describe His love.
Now, G-d in the ultimate of goodness, and "it if the nature of one who is good to perform acts of goodness." He thus desires to provide every member of His people with ongoing and consummate goodness.
When a person has bitachon, trusting without any doubt that G-d conducts the world, he is then granted the privilege of seeing this with his fleshly eyes. At every single step; he sees how g-d takes each of us by the hand and leads us in the way that is best for us, both materially and spiritually.
These are basic tenets of Jewish faith. The essays in this book provide the intellectual underpinnings for this unwavering trust. In doing so, it teaches us how to face those G-d given challenges that our eyes cannot appreciate as good.
