Product description

Review


From the previous edition:

''The Jewish Study Bible encompasses a monumental assembly of critical learning and acumen, representing the achievement of an entire generation of Jewish scholars. The commentaries are not only erudite but purposeful and theologically alert. A heroic undertaking, brilliantly conceived and executed with panache.'' --Jacob Neusner


''Serious students of Judaism will want to have a copy of this outstanding and surprisingly affordable study Bible, which stands in the tradition of Oxford's great study Bibles. '' --Publishers Weekly, Religion Bookline


''Another superb holiday gift, especially appropriate for non-Orthodox Jews, is The Jewish Study Bible from Oxford University Press, which finally stands alongside the many verse-by-verse commentaries for Christians. This work also is recommended for serious-minded Christian readers.'' --Associated Press


''This is an essential acquisition for every library and an indispensable addition for every Jewish home. It has been needed for a long time.'' --Nahum M. Sarna, Judaica, Florida Atlantic University


''The Jewish Study Bible is a major accomplishment. It provides accessible essays from the full gamut of Jewish scholarship, and a running commentary that draws liberally from both traditional and scientific perspectives.'' --Lawrence A. Hoffman, Liturgy, Worship and Ritual, Hebrew Union College


"First published in 2004, The Jewish Study Bible is a landmark, one-volume resource tailored especially for the needs of students of the Hebrew Bible. It has won acclaim from readers in all religious traditions... The quality of scholarship, easy-to-navigate format, and vibrant supplementary features bring the ancient text to life... The Jewish Study Bible, Second Edition, is an essential resource for anyone interested in the Hebrew Bible." --Jewish Media Review


"Each essay is informed, informative, and written by an authority on the subject being analyzed. Taken altogether, the essays provide a nearly exhaustive picture of all the topics basic to understanding the Bible and its background. An extremely useful resource... Highly recommended." --CHOICE
