Analyzes how, in the formation of Judaism, the written Torah, also called the Hebrew Bible and Old Testament, relate to and served the dual Torah, which consisted of both oral and written elements. Argues against holding up the written texts alone as "proofs," and that the written and oral forms comprised a single, seamless whole. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
