In Akenson's view, glossy Judaism abandons the ancient narrative attribute of Tanakh in prefer of a felony rfile, the Mishnah, that is progressively tempered by means of narrative within the Babylonian Talmud. Akenson's ardour for the texts interprets into an eloquent plea to understand them as natural wholes instead of to dissect them with steadily sharper scholarly scalpels. besides the research of texts, Akenson deals a working serious observation on smooth biblical scholarship, in addition to a longer dialogue of the transformation of anti-Judaism into anti-Semitism. sufferer readers might be rewarded with a deeper figuring out of the typical textual roots of Christianity and smooth Judaism.
