    MOBI casinotalk.pro ↠ The Essential Talmud eBook Ï The Essential Kindle - essential pdf, talmud epub, The Essential epub, The Essential Talmud PDFA surprisingly easy read especially since it's in translation from the original Hebrew This is a friendly yet detailed introduction to the Talmud including the history through several eras of those who wrote it how the Talmud is laid out and examples of the themes and types of argument that the Talmud contains That might not sound like enough to fill a few hundred pages but it is When you're done you'll understand much bette

    MOBI casinotalk.pro ↠ The Essential Talmud eBook Ï The Essential Kindle - essential pdf, talmud epub, The Essential epub, The Essential Talmud PDFI was frustrated in reading this in part because I wasn't sure who the audience was The book gives a rough overview of the history of the compilation of the Talmud its contents and its internal logic but there are massive gaps in each of these and problems with the book's overall organization that make it a very flawed introduction from any standpoint The history of compilation doesn't mention for example any clear historical context for the first group of sages and while Steinsaltz says later in the text that up to a certain point older scholars take precedence and after that point recent scholars are authoritative he doesn't actually tell you who belongs in which category or where the demarcation point is The combination makes the book problematic either for academics studying Jewish culture or for novice Talmud scholars trying to interpret Jewish law Words like Midrash which are fairly common are translated but Aggadah is used throughout and even ge

    MOBI casinotalk.pro ↠ The Essential Talmud eBook Ï The Essential Kindle - essential pdf, talmud epub, The Essential epub, The Essential Talmud PDF45Great book to give the historical background and context for the Talmud Some ideas were completely new to me though they become obvious once you think about it For example the idea that the Talmud is not really a book of law but rather a book of truth or a slice of life of the sages and what they spoke abouttaught which happens to include legal discussions they had and law classes they taughtThe reason I would not give this a full five stars is because the author sometimes speaks in vagueambiguous language rather than in concrete terms Perhaps this is because he wants his controversial statements to be less controversial this book can be enjoyed by Reform and Orthodox Jews alike Also the author does not use enough examples to demonstrate his points nor does he cite anything he says Some of the ideas were revolutionary and I would have

    MOBI casinotalk.pro ↠ The Essential Talmud eBook Ï The Essential Kindle - essential pdf, talmud epub, The Essential epub, The Essential Talmud PDFA fairly useful introduction to the Talmud but somewhat flawed in organization The chapters dealing with the history of the text are somewhat confusing with a tendency to bounce back and forth chronologically when dealing with parallel developments in the Palestinian and Babylonian academies Once the book begins to talk about the organization and content of the Talmud it gets better A few of the chapters dealing with laws relating to the Sabbath liturgy and festival days will seem rather basic to anyone who's been through an Introduction to Judaism class but that may have to do with Steinsaltz's intended audience At any rate this book should provide an excellent gr

    MOBI casinotalk.pro ↠ The Essential Talmud eBook Ï The Essential Kindle - essential pdf, talmud epub, The Essential epub, The Essential Talmud PDFLet me start with the bad of which there's little One flaw I spotted was that at times namely the historical section used certain terms without clarifying their meaning the terms for various generations of sages come to mind seeming to assume the reader already knew what they meant For my part this wasn't a problem as I did know their meaning but I can see it being confusing the uninitiated Additionally I noticed Steinsaltz didn't cite sources which is sensible for the sections on the structure of the Talmud and its methods but is a bit odd in the historical section as wellAll that said this book is amazing It provides a comprehensive overview of everything you could want to know about the Talmud whether it's to start studying it or simply to understand The reader will come to understand the history of the Talmud and the why and how behind its inception The reader will understand something of its general contents and the general layout of the Vilna
