Review: Legal Values in the Jewish Bible and Rabbinic Thought

Check out the title of my latest completed book on CD: Legal Values in the Jewish Bible and Rabbinic Thought. Dull sounding, eh? And it gets worse. It's part of The Great Lecture Library. Excite your mind - Listen to Lectures" series. Ugh.

But here's the thing, this 1 hour lecture, given by Rabbi Saul J. Berman, was simply outstanding. Rabbi Berman had both excellent points to make and a wonderful speaking style to make them in.

The Rabbi's talk was a sort of overview of how Jewish Law compares to other law - both ancient and modern. He clearly explains why the laws from the Torah were, and continue to be, revolutionary.

I simply can't do this lecture justice in this review. It's entertaining, enlightening and educational.

I think this lecture would be especially valuable for those who just don't get this whole Religion Thing; those who think it is primitive or archaic. Rabbi Berman may not change your mind, but he will give a voice of reason and logic in a topic filled with noise and confusion.

I give this CD a 10/10 - it was that good. Find it, and listen to it. You'll be glad you did.
