Everyman's talmud by. Therev. WHILE there is now no lack of books which regale the English reader with selections from the Talmud, tales from the Talmud, and wise sayings of the Rabbis, there is no work which attempts a comprehensive survey of the doctrine of this important branch of Jewish literature. To supply that want is the task undertaken in the present volume. Its aim is to provide a summary of the teachings of the Talmud on Religion, Ethics, Folk-lore, and k Jurisprudence. The need for such a work will hardly be gainsaid.

Abraham Cohen's Everyman's Talmud was the first complete English introduction to the Talmud when it was published in. .This is an excellent book that collects and organizes the outlook of the sages of the Talmud

Abraham Cohen's Everyman's Talmud was the first complete English introduction to the Talmud when it was published in 1928. So far as I know, it has never been surpassed. It is admirably thorough. This is an excellent book that collects and organizes the outlook of the sages of the Talmud. While the author may be more inclined to attribute ideas to historical reasons than most Orthodox rabbis, he mostly confines this book to quotations and brief explanations from the vast talmudic literature.

"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 NeusnerLong 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.

What I can I say? It's the Talmud separated into chapters with a reasonably good index. It's hard to rate this book:

1. If this review is for the Talmud itself, the Talmud is a legendary and epic revelation of theology. I'm a Christian and have learned an enormous amount from these writings. For those unfamiliar, the Talmud contains commentary on scripture (with references), traditional stories, and famous quotes of rabbinic scholars. It was compiled around 200 AD, with a rich historical background.

2. If this review is for this particular edit of the Talmud, it's a great copy. The whole Talmud is about 6,200 pages long, so obviously this book does not contain the whole thing. This book reduces the Talmud to the essential writings for the character of God and man's relationship to God. For those unfamiliar with the Talmud, this copy is an excellent starting point.

Great stuff ! Loaded with information. Not the actual Talmud but much in relation to or partner of. It has The Doctrine of Man, The Torah, Study on Torah, Practice of Torah, Thhe Domestic Life, Social Life, The Moral Life, Physical Life, The Evil Eye, Dreams, Jurisprudence, The Hereafter and much more. I highly recommend it. A great study source you cannot go without. A library collection.

This is a "Big Book". By that I mean that you read a passage once and you think you understand it. However, when you go back to that same passage some time later, you start to find deeper meaning in it.It does seem to fill in the "holes" that might exist in the Tanakh, if there are any. It is the pepper to the Tanakh's salt, the chocolate to its vanilla, the Frick to its Frack. They go together like hand in glove.

When Nero killed off the very early Jewish church leadership we also lost the early Talmud. We lost critical thinking. We lost some of the understanding of what the Apostles spoke.When one speaks of the children of the book that book is as much the Talmud as the Old Testament.Suggest getting Talmud for Idiots first if this is your first venture.

If you want a lucid, thoughtful, and well-organized approach to the Talmud, this is the book for you. It is considered a classic and, after reading it, I have to agree that it ranks as a classic for good reason.

Whether you are Jewish and need some help approaching the rather daunting subject of the Talmud as a whole - or you are a Christian like me, who yearns to know more about the teachings and traditions of Judaism, but need a helping hand to introduce you to a subject that at first seems strange - Abraham Cohen's "Everyman's Talmud" is THE place to start.

This book is an incredible resource, providing clear and organized information on and excerpts from the Talmud, but not only that - it is a testament to the wealth of moral teachings that define the Judaic Religion, and its timeless wisdom and goodness will resonate with many people of all religions and backgrounds.

This must be a Reform author who was catering to a Reform and non-Jewish audience. Unjustly makes the Talmud look unenlightened by chosen chapter categories and textual selections. Misses the emphasized themes and organization of the Talmud. Not an adequate or useful introduction to the Talmud. Wasted my money and taught me not to make book gifts sight unseen.

This is a must read for everyone. Jew, Christian, Muslim or even if you are one of those people who isn't sure what you believe. This book is a masterpiece and I wish I'd found it sooner. Nowhere have I seen a book that applies man's sense of reason with his need for morals. Its a book that requires very little knowledge of Talmud or Torah so rookies - have no fear.

This is a book that if the whole world just read it once - and tried to put a handful of its teachings into practice - would usher in an age of peace like we have never seen.
I am not yet very deep into the book, but I have loved it so far. Cohen's selection of words and idioms is impeccable. The introduction is very vivid and helpful, even if you have no previous knowledge on the topic. Some basic Tanakh cognizance helps a lot, but if you're looking for books like this one then I'm sure you won't have an issue.

If I could complain about something, it'd be the dates provided for births, deaths, and other events (especially in the Introduction); not because they're wrong (how can I know), but because they seem to differ (greatly) from every other source I check. Dates aside, the content is invaluable.

This is not meant for serious Talmud study, as other have said, but I don't think that was the author's purpose when publishing. It is a thorough overview of the major teachings conveniently divided by topics, which is great to get acquainted with what the Talmud says and with the ideology of most of the Jewish population. If you're just beginning to study Talmud, I reccommend getting this book, reading it, and then moving on to a more focused one. Great purchase, no regrets.
