Publisher Comments:

"To some readers of this book, the Talmud represents little more than a famous Jewish book. But people want to know about a book that, they are told, defines Judaism. Everyman's Talmud is the right place to begin not only to learn about Judaism in general but to meet the substance of the Talmud in particular . . . In time to come, Cohen's book will find its companion-though I do not anticipate it will ever require a successor for what it accomplishes with elegance and intelligence: a systematic theology of the Talmud's Judaism."

—From the Foreword by Jacob Neusner

Long regarded as the classic introduction to the teachings of the Talmud, this comprehensive and masterly distillation summarizes the wisdom of the rabbinic sages on the dominant themes of Judaism: the doctrine of God; God and the universe; the soul and its destiny; prophesy and revelation; physical life; moral life and social living; law, ethics, and jurisprudence; legends and folk traditions; the Messiah and the world to come.

Synopsis:

Long regarded as the classic introduction to the teachings of the Talmud, this comprehensive and masterly distillation summarizes the wisdom of the rabbinic sages on the dominant themes of Judaism.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 391-393) and index.

KIER8, December 16, 2008 (view all comments by KIER8)
The Talmud is a monumental and complex work of law and lore that was completed by Babylonian and Israeli rabbis about 200 C.E. A good introduction and summary is "Everyman's Talmud" by the editor of the fourteen-volume Soncino Press Books of the Bible series, Rabbi Dr. Abraham Cohen, a British scholar. It includes an introduction by an American scholar, Dr. Jacob Neusner.
