Item Description...
A Translation And Commentary - The Babylonian Talmud is a sustained commentary on the written law (the Torah, the Hebrew Scripture) and on the oral law (the Mishnah) of Israel. Completed in about 600 C.E., the Talmud of Babylonia records how Jewish scholars preserved a humane religion and enduring culture. As the primary document of rabbinic Judaism, it throws considerable light on New Testament studies as well. Jacob Neusner completed this monumental American translation and commentary of the Babylonian Talmud in the 1990s, but until now it was expensive and difficult to obtain. Along with a new general introduction, Neusner has since added fresh and helpful introductions to individual tractates, as well as references for Bible verses alluded to in the Talmud. Now all thirty-seven Talmudic tractates, recently published in 22 hardcover volumes, are available on a searchable CD. The CD contains the all content of the translation, commentary, and introductions in PDF format. Enabling instantaneous searches by word or phrase, it provides exceptional research capabilities-and opens swift avenues for exploration and discovery. * PDF format allows multi-volume searches and commenting on either PC or Mac * Presented in an analytical format that makes logical units easier to follow * Mishnah passages are set in bold type * Includes the 37 Talmudic tractates of the 63 total tractates of the Mishnah * Passages translated from Aramaic are set in italics

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Back to the Sources  May 29, 2007
The Talmud is the fundamental source for Jewish oral law, or explanation and development of the written law that appears in the first five books of the Bible. The Talmud reads like the Biblical version of the Notes of Debates in the Federal Convention of 1787 Reported by James Madison. It is not an easy read. But here one finds the most authoritative exposition of Judaism and a classic of Western thought.

This edition collects the Talmud in the most affordable modern English translation. It employs Neusner's characteristic outline style. And much attention is given to form and structure. Although the printed volumes do not contain indices, the set includes a valuable searchable compact disc. This edition presents a splendid option for a general reader hoping to attack the original text.

Older editions include Rodkinson's NEW EDITION OF THE BABYLONIAN TALMUD ORIGINAL TEXT, EDITED, CORRECTED, FORMULATED AND TRANSLATED INTO ENGLISH (1903) and Epstein's Babylonian Talmud (Soncino Talmud). 18 Volumes. (1953). A wonderful searchable electronic version of the Esptein Soncino Talmud is available, along with Midrash Rabbah (10 Vol. Set) and Zohar (5 Volume set), in Davka's Soncino Classics Collection.

A more user-friendly version of the Talmud is found in Steinsaltz's version, which is not yet complete. Consider this edition for a gentler introduction to the Talmud. The first volume of the set is The Talmud, The Steinsaltz Edition, Volume 1: Bava Metzia Part 1 (Talmud the Steinsaltz Edition). And a very useful reference volume is Talmud Reference Guide (Talmud the Steinsaltz Edition). Consider getting this reference guide no matter which Talmud you settle on.

But if you want to spend significant time with the Talmud and truly dig deeply into this fundamental source, among English translations, there is no substitute for the ArtScroll edition, complete at 73 volumes for about $2000. The commentary is deeper, the original Hebrew text is also printed opposite the English translation, and each volume is fully indexed. Consider purchasing the first volume, Schottenstein Daf Yomi Edition of the Talmud : English Berachos Volume 1 (folios 2a-30b).

No matter which way to enter the waters of the Talmud, do take the swim. For its waters are deep and wide. And they will take you places that you can reach through no other journey.
