Judaism: Development and Life
JUDAISM: DEVELOPMENT AND LIFE guides readers through the history, evolution, life patterns, institutions, practices, customs, and current expressions of Judaism. This text assumes no prior knowledge about Judaism or the Bible, making it ideal for introductory courses. The only other book necessary to understanding this book is the Bible itself. A chapter on Zionism and the State of Israel includes up-to-date information about the Israeli-Palestinian peace process.
