Item description for Judaism in the First Centuries of the Christian Era: The Age of the Tannaim/3 Volumes Bound in 2 Books by George Moore...
Overview Serious students of Judaism in the early centuries of the Common Era consider these three volumes indispensable for studying the Jewish world of the New Testament period. Besides looking at the historical issues surrounding Judaism, Moore examines Judaism's theology, its religious observances, views toward morality and piety, and Jewish reflections on the hereafter. His thoroughgoing familiarity with the primary sources, Talmud, Mishnah, Midrash, and other writings from Judaism of the Common Era, puts Moore in a class by himself. A comprehensive index and a volume of notes make this a prize, especially since it has not been available in its full form for more than twenty-five years. (Three volumes in two hardcovers.)

Reviews - What do customers think about Judaism in the First Centuries of the Christian Era: The Age of the Tannaim/3 Volumes Bound in 2 Books?
The best book on Judaism I have ever read Jan 13, 1999
This is a scholarly work by an author of immense erudition who never reveals his own beliefs but gives an elaborate and clear account of the religion known as Judaism as it developed during its normative period.
The index of passages cited in the work is enough alone to humble all but the most profound of scholars of the Hebrew and Aramaic and classical sources.
Anyone seriously interested in Judaism as a religion should read this book.
Many years ago the late Professor Leon Roth (a former Rector of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem) said to me that he regarded the book as the best book in the English language on Judaism and possibly the best book in any language on Judaism. Having read it I agreed with him and in the intervening years I have never encountered anything to change my view.
