Brilliant  May 19, 2007
This book finally reveals the Samaritans in their own words, an important and worthwhile endeavor. For a long time this was a people that was forgotten, like the Armenians. However in the 2-5th centuries A.D they made up half or more of the population of the Holy Land. A semi-Jewish people practicing a form of Judaism lived and worshipped in these centuries until they were destroying in a series of rebellions against Christian Byzantium and perseucted under Absassid Islam. A fascinating religion and people, these importatn texts explain their way of life and traditions and keep them with us.

True a diamond in the ruff  Dec 18, 2005
First, I must say that finding books that actually give the Samaritan perspective about their community free of outside interpretations is difficult. That being said John Bowman's book is one of a few that actually allow the perspective to speak for itself. The book a treasure since it translates the Samaritan equivalent of Midrash, Talmudic type texts, Hagaddic, etc. This book alone is good in understanding the Samaritan from their very own texts. It must be noted that the version that I have at least is type set with a type writer type script, but don't let that hold you back from acquiring this book if you are interested in Samaritan traditional understanding. All, and all I consider this one of the best finds I have on Samaritan history.
 
Must buy!!  Aug 24, 1998
This book is a must buy! John Bowman was professor of Department of Middle Eastern Studies at the University of Melbourne, Australia. The book is a total of 370 pages long. It is divided into 5 chapters. It beginns with the Samaritan Bible as he calls it. Next is the translation of the Chronicles of the Samaritans which is had to find out side of this book. Chapter 3 is Biblical Commentraies of the Samaritans. Chapter 4 is Haggadic Midrash which is their beliefs. Five is the Halakah codes or rules including Marriage, circumcision etc. In the Epilgue at the end is four prayers translated from the Samaritan Liturgy. At the back is an index with an index of Biblical and post-biblical references. This book also has a short Bibliography. The author has given footnotes at the end of each section. This book you can not refuse to buy. It is well under priced for the information that it has. Buy it and enjoy!
