Rabbi Dr Halivni is recognized as one of the greats of academic study of rabbinic literature. His works - both those for the educated layman and his purely academic elite "Sources & Tradition" - are works of both intense scholarship and a deep religious devotion to Talmudic study. The reader of this book can approach it as Dr Livni's testament to his life's work and be satisfied that he's been granted access to some of the most advanced thinking in the study of ancient texts of contemporary scholars.
Or the reader can go one great step further. The sources which are quoted are mostly traditional talmudic material; most who study this material will not even have heard of Dr Halivni, and far fewer will ever have been exposed to his work. However, for those who toil daily in the study of Talmud, this book can be a great liberator and mind expander. They - particularly the most advanced of them - can take the book and its sources and truly study it. The sources are mostly all in "their wheelhouse"; but viewing with Halivni's contemporary scholastic lens, they may well come alive. For those who are deep into the study of Talmud "l'shma" - for its own sake - this book can be a truly mind-expanding experience.

Fascinating summary of a lifetime's work in investigating the origins of the Talmud. I would love to see a learned critique of the theories presented but few are probably qualified to respond.

It was comprehensive and brilliant. The detailed presentation offers a true breakthrough in Jewish scholarship.
Kol ha- kavod to Professor David Halivni.
