Product Description

An elegant introduction to the definitive teachings of Judaism. Making the wisdom of the rabbinic sages accessible to scholars, students, and laypeople, Abraham Cohen offers a lucid distillation of dominant Talmudic themes, including God and the universe; the soul and its destiny; prophecy and revelation; physical, moral and social life, law, ethics, the Messiah, the world to come and legends and folk traditions.
Abraham Cohen (1887-1957) was the editor of the Soncino Books of the Bible and participated in the Soncino translation of the Talmud and Midrash.

Publisher's Description

"To some readers of this book, the Talmud represents little more than a famous Jewish book. But people want to know about a book that, they are told, defines Judaism. Everyman's Talmud is the right place to begin not only to learn about Judaism in general but to meet the substance of the Talmud in particular . . . In time to come, Cohen's book will find its companion-though I do not anticipate it will ever require a successor for what it accomplishes with elegance and intelligence: a systematic theology of the Talmud's Judaism."
—From the Foreword by Jacob Neusner

Long regarded as the classic introduction to the teachings of the Talmud, this comprehensive and masterly distillation summarizes the wisdom of the rabbinic sages on the dominant themes of Judaism: the doctrine of God; God and the universe; the soul and its destiny; prophesy and revelation; physical life; moral life and social living; law, ethics, and jurisprudence; legends and folk traditions; the Messiah and the world to come.

    I bought this book for my husband who loves deep study of God's Word. He has been so excited to use this book to better understand the thinking of the Jewish people. In this way he is able to better understand the audience for whom the Books of the Bible were written.

    Everyman's Talmud is so full of information and insights. My husband is really enjoying it and he has just scratched the surface.
