Item description for From Adam to Noah: A Commentary on the Book of Genesis I- VI (Pt. 1) by U. Cassuto...
This is the first in a series of comprehensive commentaries on the "Book of Genesis" that the late Professor Umberto Cassuto had planned as part of a magnum opus embracing the whole "Pentateuch" and also the "Book of Psalms". The aim of this commentary is to explain, with the help of an historico-philological method of interpretation, the simple meaning of the Biblical text, and to arrive, as nearly as possible, at the sense that the words of the Torah were intended to have for the reader at the time they were written.

Reviews - What do customers think about From Adam to Noah: A Commentary on the Book of Genesis I- VI (Pt. 1)?
too expensive May 24, 2008
Book of Genesis divided to many slim volumes, each volume cost a lot, it seems like an outprint old plate, and shipping from UK to USA takes a long time. The pointviews somehow at some point seems strage, perhaps Rabbi always has some different view?
