Hi,

Bottom line: a questionnaire for Christians at http://bit.ly/avot-signup

I am endeavoring to publish a volume called Pirkei Avot for Christians.

Pirkei Avot is a six chapter collection focusing on three areas: personal ethics, social conduct, and the importance of Torah study. It includes some of the best known sayings of Judaism, besides those recorded in the Bible. It quotes sages from as early as the third century BC, so it stands to reason that Jesus and his contemporaries were as well versed in it as they were in the Bible itself.

I want this book to be an understandable rendering of the primary text that allows it to stand alone, with a minimum of explanations where absolutely necessary.

I am looking for volunteers to read all or part of the text, and to comment and especially ask questions about it. From my reviewers, I mostly am looking for questions about content that a modern adult Christian reader would find difficult or puzzling.

Please complete this form http://bit.ly/avot-signup to get access to the document and instructions on how to proceed. If you want to ask me questions first, feel free to do so.

    I put my hand up to do a review Pirkei Avot, but found it so disjoint that I haven’t proceeded. I doubt there would be much Christian interest in this.
