I want to explain that I did not give 5 stars to this excellent collection mainly because it was dealing with the holy writings of Judaism, and while respectful of their source, I did not like them being called "literature". I was expecting something quite different, such as the actual writings of Josephus, and less discussion on the "literature". (No, Josephus is not a holy writing, but the Mishnah and the Gemara are, as well as the FIve Books of Moses.) To millions of Jewish people, this is not just literature, but living exegesis of how to live one's life TODAY. It is studied and is alive with relevance to life in this day and every age. That said, it was still an interesting set of writings. I would have liked to have seen some approbations from Rabbinical sources for this work, or for the author. Luckily, I am certain of my heritage and know that this is not just plain literature (most of it) and so find nothing wrong with it in that sense. I would not give this to a Jewish person who is just becoming religious because it does not present the information as Orthodox Judaism sees it. WHen someone is further along in their beliefs, they would be able to discern the errors in presenting much of the material as "literature". Since one of my grandsons is turning 21, and is studying to be a Rabbi, I read the book before giving it to him. I feel that with his strong background and his knowledge, he will be able to see the writings as I did, without it swaying him to believe something that is not in line with Orthodoxy. It's a fine, well written book with reasonable sources, however, most are not Orthodox sources. Thus, I wrote my grandson a letter to go along with the book, telling him of its characteristics, and my belief that he was certainly knowledgeable enough to sort the wheat from the chaff. It's a very interesting book which I do recommend with caution for the reasons cited.

Great literature for those who learn for Jewish literature, seeing in the light of early first century with a lens of modern.

You have to have a lot of time. I had trouble keeping my interest. I had to read other books in the meantime or I would get bored
