This work is unparalleled in shedding light on the approach of Rabbenu Avraham and HaRambam, and is especially important when considering the developments of science, and the religious confrontation that constantly arises.

Born and raised in South Florida, Rabbi Yitzhak Berdugo studied at Yeshivat Beth Moshe Chaim (Talmudic University) in Miami Beach and recieved his semikha under the auspices of its Rosh Yeshiva, Rabbi Yochanan Moshe Zweig, SHELIT"A.
