    Here are the problems;

    Folio pages difficult to find

    Folio pages not marked

    Folio Pages incorrectly marked

    Folio Pages marked in the wrong place

    Chapter headings giving the wrong folio pages in the chapter

    Some content missing

    The binding is glued not sown.

    Here are the positives:

    Written in accessible language

    Good price

    Good service from CDB

    Reference to Mishnah and Tosefta is helpful

    Clearly these books are seconds and should be advertised as such. The price is right. Hendrickson does not really care about the layout of the folio pages.

    I would not recommend these to anybody at all! Only buy this version if you cannot afford the Artcroll or Socinco editions in the book form. Buy the electronic edition of this, I hope that it is better than this paper version.

    The Babylonian Talmud is a must for every Jewish home. Christians will find it very useful as well. You will probably never read every volume, but it is a great reference library to the Old Testament. And the price can't be beat.

    This is not a bad buy for someone starting to study Talmud.If a christian wants to go toe to toe in rabbinic debate or understand early church and rabbinics this will help, however you might also want to invest in Koren's (Steinsaltz) or Artscroll's Sha (Talmud). Even though Neusner's is good for the beginner, I pray christian books makes a deal with Artscroll or Koren. The commentary to the talmud text is critically worth it to understand to connect between christian and (Orthodox) rabbinic thought.

    The product itself is easy to use and understand. It also puts a great many things about The Old Testament, Judaism and why Jews and Christians belief systems are as they are in perspective.
