Summary "Mainly intended for readers who have little sense of what the Talmud actually is, Kirsch explores the Talmud as a critic and journalist. Maybe the best way to describe this book is as a kind of travelogue-a report on what Kirsch saw during his seven-and-a-half-year journey through the Talmud"-- Provided by publisher
