Reader Reviews


"Offers a fascinating introduction to the codified oral tradition."
Christianity Today
"Steinsaltz is a consummate master of the subject...extremely helpful."
"Rabbi Steinsaltz not only organizes and clarifies a vast amount of highly complex material, but manages to suggest the magnetism of the Talmudic commitment through the centuries...[a] worthwhile introduction to the character and genius of the Talmud for non-Jews and a refresher course for Jews who wish an uncluttered layman's view."
