"Jeremy Rosen has provided a most readable and useful smorgasbord of Jewish history, biblical law and ethics, concepts and issues in Talmudic theology, medieval philosophy and mysticism, a survey of modern movements in Jewish life, the challenges of fundamentalism, and daily rituals and life cycles." The Jewish Chronicle "What Rosen attempts to do in this book is vast, embracing history, theology, spirituality, sociology and politics... This is a general introduction to the world of Judaism, seen through the eyes of a scholar/practitioner and is highly to be recommended." New Connexions
