Book Description:
The FAQs of Judaism from a frequently asked answerer

What is rabbinic Judaism? Was Jesus a Jew by the definition of Judaism? What is Midrash? When and how did rabbinic Judaism recognize Christianity as a separate religion? What is Reform Judaism? Orthodox Judaism? Conservative Judaism?

Jacob Neusner addresses the fundamental questions students of the Bible, Judaism, or World Religion often pose about the literature, history, religion, and theology of Rabbinic Judaism. Here are the recurring questions asked of this renowned Jewish scholar during forty years of lecturing to non Jewish students at countless Protestant and Roman Catholic schools plus a few questions he wished they had asked. His clear, succinct answers feature portions of rabbinic texts drawn from the rich tradition of Judaism, and include supplementary readings.

'Rabbinic Judaism is a mysterious maze to most Christians. Neusner however offers an effective and valuable solution by using the 'Q & A' approach to break rabbinic thought into digestible bites. At Neusner s table one may sample some of the intriguing fare of Halakah and Aggada. No fluff here. One may also be substantially nourished by biting into some of the theological staples of Rabbinic Judaism such as free will, virtue, work, human suffering, sin, repentance, atonement, Messiah, resurrection, heaven and hell and the world to come. . . .an accessible and edifying work by a world class scholar on many of the questions thoughtful Christians would want to pose to a Jew.' Marvin R. Wilson, Gordon College, Wenham, MA
