This is a remarkable feat of reference scholarship by renowned Cambridge professor and translator, Nicholas de Lange. With an approachable A to Z format, the book covers everything from Jewish traditions and biographical entries on key historical figures to theology, religious law and practice, and the history of Jewish thought. Each entry is presented with clarity, precision, and authority. With extensive cross-referencing and invaluable additional material such as a chronology of Judaism and the Jewish calendar, this is an essential companion for students of Jewish studies, Hebrew, religion, and theology, or anyone with a general interest in this rich religion.
