The Jews: Their Religious Beliefs and Practices (The Library of Religious Beliefs and Practices) by Alan Unterman



In this revised and fully updated introduction to Jewish beliefs and practices the author demonstrates that Judiaism is a living religion which retains the vitality apparent in the Biblical corpus, but which has gone on to develop institutions, modes of behaviour and patterns of thought which together constitute the singularity of Jewish expression. The study as a whole portrays, for the non-Jew and the uniformed Jew, a vivid insight into the great legal, mystical, theological, ethical and ritual traditions which have preserved the identity of the exiled and often outcast Jew, and enabled him to carry the message of the Hebrew Bible into the modern world.
