More on Wimpfheimer, The Talmud: A Biography

TALMUD WATCH: New Talmud ‘biography’ seeks to bring the foundational text to life. Prof. Barry Scott Wimpfheimer has studied the Oral Law since he was 17; now he shares its story with an accessible, big picture view of its centrality to Judaism (Rich Tenorio, Times of Israel).

I noted the publication of The Talmud: A Biography, by Barry Scott Wimpfheimer, here earlier this year. This article discusses the book at some length and interviews the author.
