The Rambam and Creation Ex Nihilo This is a good essay about this important topic and I thought to bring it to others since I have mentioned a few times the basic characteristics of Monotheism as understood by Maimonides and never brought my sources. So here for those interested is the essay from which  I based my views. [I never claimed i figured it all out on my own.]

I haven mentioned that the Rambam is not a pantheistic. So here in this essay is an analysis of this fact. See the son of the Rambam for more details about this.
