Random House, Inc Everyman's Talmud The Major Teachings of the Rabbinic Sages

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.

The printing and the paper are good quality.
This is a book added to my Jewish library, for my personal study.
Have found no flaws in printing, etc. Very satisfied with this purchase.

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.
