Judaism: Practice & Belief 63 BCE–66 CEE. P. Sanders (London: SCM Press, 1992/Philadelphia: Trinity Press International, 1992) xix + 580 pp., $29.95 paper
This is a useful and important book. E. P. Sanders has set for himself the goal of describing Judaism as actually lived by Jews in the century and a half between the conquest of Palestine by the Romans in 63 B.C.E. and the outbreak of the Great Revolt that led to the destruction of the Second Temple in 70 C.E.
