This book offers a great look at Jewish history and the competition between scholars of the Torah and how their interpretations have impacted the direction of Judaism in history. It is a fascinating book that helps us to understand some of the questions about how the Jewish community has become what it is today and helps us to understand the conflicts that Judaism currently faces. It was a great to read and is recommended to anyone interested in this part of history.
