Product Description

Product Description

The Talmud is one of the most significant religious texts in the world, second only to the Bible in its importance to Judaism. As the Bible is the word of God, The Talmud applies that word to the lives of its followers. In a range of styles including commentary, parables, proverbs and anecdotes, it provides guidance on all aspects of everyday life from ownership to commerce to relationships. This selection of its most illuminating passages makes accessible the centuries of Jewish thought within The Talmud.



Norman Solomon's clear translation from the Bavli (Babylonian) Talmud is accompanied by an introduction on its arrangement, social and historical background, reception and authors. This edition also includes appendixes of background information, a glossary, time line, maps and indexes.

About the Author

Norman Solomon is a Fellow in Modern Jewish Thought at Oxford Center for Hebrew and Jewish Studies, and Lecturer at Oxford University

5.0 out of 5 stars DISCOVERING THE TALMUD 3 May 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
There are many books about Judaism, starting with the Torah, the five books which form the canon of the Jewish religion: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deutoronomy. There are many more books of exegesis of Judaism, written by rabbis across the world. This edition of The Talmud presents a selection of the full text of that work, translated into English, and it provides an insight into the intricately argued details of the full work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super 9 Jan 2013
By Birmingham Book Reader VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
While a Christian I have always been interested in the Jewish writings as the world has much it can learn from people of the Jewish faith. Having long wanted to read some of the Talmud have found this book a wonderful introduction.
The sections are presented in a clear and readable way.
Highly recommended.
