Reviews - What do customers think about The Commentator's Bible: The Jps Miqra'ot Gedolot: Exodus?

Thank you.  Nov 11, 2007
Thank you for making Miqra'ot Gedolot accessible in English for Sefer Shmot. The volume is beautiful and easy to read and use. Please, please make available the other four books of the Torah.
 
Commentator's Bible User Review  May 7, 2007
I bought this book for a class and the various commentaries have proved to be very interesting. I generally like the organization although sometimes it gets a little confusing especially when you go from page to page. However, I'm not sure there is any better way to do it.
 
Perfect Commentary for Beginners  Mar 26, 2007
This is by far my favorite Torah commentary yet! It includes the original Hebrew text and two English translations, which are useful for understanding words with multiple meanings. The commentaries are excellent. While they are edited to exclude most of the notes on the grammatical structure of the text, they provide incredible depth to the meaning of the text and fill in a great deal of background from midrash. This is the text I use when I teach a Torah study class for adults.
 
Great reference material  Mar 19, 2007
This is a wonderful compendium of authoritative commentary on the book of Exodus. It is well led out and easy to read. Great for reference and great for study.
 
Fascinating insights into Exodus in plain English.  Mar 12, 2007
I bought the book on the recommendation of my brother and boy am I glad I did! I always wished I could read all the commentaries surrounding the basic text in the Bible, but my Hebrew isn't up to it and my Aramaic is non existant. This book has solved my problem. It is fascinating and deepens the reader's understanding of Exodus.
