Reviews - What do customers think about Torah/Large-Print Edition?
Creased spine.... Apr 15, 2008
There was a crease in the spine, which I didn't think would matter. The pages are already falling out!
A way to learn of others befiefs Feb 25, 2007
I was raised a Presbyterian and studied Buddhism for most of my adult life. I have always been interested in others beliefs and I was not disappointed. The book is a modern translation without losing its meaning. Easily readable for today.
Paperback Torah Jan 12, 2007
This is a great little book when you need just an English translation of the Torah.
Just Right Dec 18, 2006
This translation is one of the best. I like the size of the Pocket Edition because it is convenient for travelling.
Easy reading for the lay person Dec 3, 2005
I'm not a Bible scholar, so I'm basing my review on ease of use for the lay person.
This Torah was written to be very easy to read. The font is easy on the eyes, and there are plenty of footnotes.
I liked how the Preface explained the history of how this version came to be, and also the guide to using the footnotes.
This review is based on the paperback version. That version is very thick (1.5" - my pockets are not quite that big for this pocketbook version!), so I later bought the hardcover edition for easy reading while doing something with my hands, like eating.
