Book News Annotation:

Reprint of the T. & T. Clark (Scot.) edition of 1991 with a new (14 pp.) foreword.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Readers will note a number of significant changes. Most importantly, the present text substantially represents the eighth German edition published by Gunter Stemberger in 1992.

Synopsis:

Gunter Stemberger's revision of H. L. Strack's classic introduction to rabbinic literature, which appeared in its first English edition in 1991, was widely acclaimed. Gunter Stemberger and Markus Bockmuehl have now produced this updated edition, which is a significant revision (completed in 1996) of the 1991 volume. Following Strack's original outline, Stemberger discusses first the historical framework, the basic principles of rabbinic literature and hermeneutics and the most important Rabbis. The main part of the book is devoted to the Talmudic and Midrashic literature in the light of contemporary rabbinic research. The appendix includes a new section on electronic resources for the study of the Talmud and Midrash. The result is a comprehensive work of reference that no student of rabbinics can afford to be without.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references and indexes.

KIER8, July 11, 2010 (view all comments by KIER8)
Who would think that a German Protestant professor would write a comprehensive, concise, and captivating "Introduction to the Talmud and Midrash" that would be perused by many Jewish and Christian seminary students and laymen alike [in the original German, and since 1931 in English]. Kudos to Professors Gunter Stemberger & Markus Bockmuehl for updating this classic to reflect recent scholarship and the Internet Age.
