Comments The Talmud: A Selection

  • Kyle

    So far I've read three different books comprised of selected passages of the Talmud. This is the best. I highly recommend it for students of religion.


  • James Violand

    Bizarre. And funny in a confusing way. Start with the premise that the Almighty is the Great Auditor intent on discovering whether you have screwed up in even the most innocent, minor way. Wham! He got you. At least that's what two rabbinical schools seem to have invented after the destruction of the Temple. One faction was in Palestine, the other in Babylon. Each throughout the ensuing 800 year history, tried to dominate the other. They alienated much of the Jewish world by their precise requir [...]

  • Rebecca

    The rating here is for the editor's thoughtful introduction and annotations. The text itself - well, it's the Talmud


  • Jon-Erik

    Anyone who wants to engage with rabbinic literature should use this book as a starting place, and you can pick your spot to go further in this ocean. This book serves as a much better introduction than some of the older, denser attempts at topic summaries (A. Cohen) or some of the other things that pop up on that kind of reading list.The translations are good. For the price, you can't get your hands on more of the Talmud. Though I prefer bilingual facing-page versions of texts like that, the onl [...]
