Judaism is a culture with a long history and a belief system that has endured millennia of oppression, evolution, and influence. "The Jewish Bible" is a complete and comprehensive guide to anyone who wants to learn about the Torah and the Talmud. With summaries of each of the Bible's individual books, a glossary of terms, important diagrams and maps, along with scholarly commentary from some of today's most influential Judaic scholars, "The Jewish Bible" is a highly educational piece and essential reading for scholars, students, and non-specialist general readers with an interest in Judaism. No personal, community, or academic library's Judaic Studies reference collections would be complete or comprehensive without the inclusion of The Jewish Publication Society's edition of "The Jewish Bible"
