"The world is a very narrow bridge. The main thing is not to be afraid." The joyous, positive message of the outstanding Chassidic luminary, Rebbe Nachman of Breslov (1772-1810) is more relevant & needed than ever. "Crossing the Narrow Bridge" gives clear practical guidance as to how his teachings can be applied in everyday life today. The author, Rabbi Chaim Kramer, is director of the Breslov Research Institute, which for the last eleven years has been publishing authoritative translations of Rebbe Nachman's works in English & French. Rabbi Kramer has drawn on years of intimacy with leading figures in the Breslov Chassidic communities to bring this tradition to the reader in the form of numerous anecdotes & insights. Lively, down to earth, & easy to read, "Crossing the Narrow Bridge" covers all aspects of the Rebbe Nachman's teachings--from faith, simplicity, prayer & meditation to earning a living, health-care & bringing up children, etc. Each of the twenty chapters offers a basic understanding of its topic as seen through Rebbe Nachman's own lessons & stories, together with practical suggestions enabling the reader to translate these teachings into his own life
