Item description for Questions and Answers: Intellectual Foundations of Judaism by Jacob Neusner...
Overview What is rabbinic Judaism? Was Jesus a Jew by the definition of Judaism? What is Midrash? When and how did rabbinic Judaism recognize Christianity as a separate religion? What is Reform Judaism? Orthodox Judaism? Conservative Judaism? Jacob Neusner addresses the fundamental questions students of the Bible, Judaism, or world religions often pose about the literature, history, religion, and theology of Rabbinic Judaism. Here are the recurring questions asked of this renowned Jewish scholar during forty years of lecturing to non-Jewish students at countless Protestant and Roman Catholic schools-plus a few questions he wished they had asked. His clear, succinct answers feature portions of rabbinic texts drawn from the rich tradition of Judaism, and include supplementary readings.
