Despite the extraordinarily diverse forms it has taken, the Jewish people have believed themselves bound to God by the same covenant for more than three thousand years/5(13). The character of any religion as it is lived and practiced can be quite different from the prescriptions and ideals of its traditions and rituals. This bifurcation can also be found in the tension between the ideas people hold and the things they do. In this volume, Jacob Neusner addresses a broad audience of people who care about religion in general, not Judaism in particular.
