Abstract:

In this collection of Jewish teachings, biblical scholar Dale Salwak presents the Judaic tradition from a unique and accessible perspective. Salwak likens the literary source of the Judaic tradition to an inverted pyramid, with the Bible - made up of the Law (the Torah or five books of Moses), the Prophets (Nevi'im) and the Writings (Ketuvim) - at its foundation.

From this foundation, the pyramid expands with the Oral Torah or Talmud, the rabbinic stories and legends, the legal codes, the Mystical tradition, and the book of organized prayer (Siddur). From this broad source, Salwak pulls the essential wisdom of Judaism and organizes it into chapters on God's commandments and promises, the nature of God, celebrations of God, and wisdom for living - with sections on marriage, work, study, children, humility, and more.

He finishes with an afterword that quotes modern Jewish leaders and thinkers - Golda Meir, Rabbi Harold Kushner, Margaret Fishback Powers, Albert Einstein.
