"A wonderfully, enchanting compilation of stories from the Baal Shem Tov that captures the essence and Yiddishkeit of chassidut. A fabulous tome for the old and young, for those who are liberal or those who are traditional. Buxbaum's compilation is enjoyable for bedtime reading for adults and children, as well as an outstanding source for scholars and rabbis."- Shamash, February 22, 2006

'Yitzhak Buxbaum's "The Light and Fire of the Ba'al Shem Tov" is a beautifully put together, easily accessible treasury if these tales. Its uniqueness lies in his efforts to place the tales, as best as her can, in chronological order and so paint for us a sophisticated biography if the Ba'al Shem Tov....This fine work is user-friendly with useful endnotes, a glossary of Jewish terms and a bibliography to aid further study.'Jewish Chronicle, Rabbi Demant, 8th September 2006
