There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The huge negative is a lack of index, or actually two or three indices. It is almost impossible to come back to this book and its sister volumes as references. It needed a names index, a normal index of key words or phrases, and an index of referenced classical sources with a few words of description. The table of contents is not sufficiently detailed to make up for that shortfall. The "table of contents" is the classical text Pirkei Avot, Sayings of the Fathers. This entire series follows that book's chronology.
He also cross-relates to the Romans and the Christians. Learned facts about Beit Hillel and Beit Shammai I had never heard before. I was raised on the homilies about how nice they were to each other.
