Book Description: Serious students of Judaism in the early centuries of the Common Era consider these three volumes indispensable for studying the Jewish world of the New Testament period. Besides looking at the historical issues surrounding Judaism, Moore examines Judaism's theology, its religious observances, views toward morality and piety, and Jewish reflections on the hereafter. His thoroughgoing familiarity with the primary sources—Talmud, Mishnah, Midrash, and other writings from Judaism of the Common Era—puts Moore in a class by himself. A comprehensive index and a volume of notes make this a prize, especially since it has not been available in its full form for more than twenty-five years. (Three volumes in two hardcovers.)

About the Author: George Foot Moore (1851-1931), was ordained in the Presbyterian ministry in 1878. He was professor of Hebrew at Andover Theological Seminary from 1883-1902. In 1902 he became Professor of Theology at Harvard, and from 1904-1928 was Professor of Religious History there. An eminent Asian scholar and a noted teacher, he wrote a number of books, including The Literature of the Old Testament (1913), and History of Religions (Vol. I, 1913; Vol. II, 1919).

CBD Description:For the first time in 25 years, you can get Moore's classic in its entirety! Drawing on his remarkable familiarity with the primary sources (Talmud, Mishnah, Midrash, and other writings), he examines the Jewish world of the New Testament: history, theology, religious observances, views toward morality and piety, and reflections on the hereafter. 1266 pages total, three volumes in two hardcovers from Hendrickson.
