"Derech Hashem -- The Way of God" by Rabbi Moshe Chaim Luzzatto (Feldheim, 1997). Quietly studying a page of the Talmud on a crowded plane, the great Orthodox teacher and thinker Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik was interrupted by a passenger in the next seat. "Pardon me. What is that you are studying?" the man asked. Soloveitchik explained the nature of the Talmud, and that he was a professor of Talmud at Yeshiva University. The man was incredulous.
