The Legends of the Jews 2 volume setThe JPS classic reissue of a Jewish masterpiece reset in two volumes with all new indexes To this day Legends of the Jews remains a most remarkable and comprehensive compilation of stories connected to the Hebrew Bible It is an indispensable reference on that body of literature known as Midrash the imaginative retelling and elaboration on Bible stories in which mythological tales about demons and magic co exist with moralistic stories about the piety of the patriarchs Legends is the first book to which one turns to learn about the postbiblical understanding of a biblical episode or to discover the source for biblical legends that cannot be traced directly to the Bible It is also the first place to find the answers to such uestions as on what day was Abraham born; what was Moses' ph So I have a format problem with this book which you will not realize until you buy it It is really a manuscript with very low uality type setting since there is way too much content on one huge page with hardly any breaks thus making it very difficult to read and follow and I have 5 50 vision and I have never had that as an issue come up for me Secondly this looks like an print job and importantly the translation is crude Disappointedyou get what you pay for in this case
