Books I want to own: part one?
Somehow I missed this when it was published. But I want one. The Commentator's Bible: The Jps Miqra'ot Gedolot: Exodus
is apparently a translation into English of the Rabbinic Bible, and has translations of Rashi, Ibn Ezra, Nahmanides, Rashbam, and other medieval Jewish commentators alongside the Bible text. Just for Abraham Ibn Ezra's sensible and often insightful remarks alone it would be worth the US$75 asking price, it has to be a steal at Amazon's discount...
Or is it?Berel Lerner
(Western Galilee College, Israel) commenting on the Amazon page writes:
Just by checking the sample page available on the JPS website, I immediately saw that much of Ibn Ezra was missing.
So, if anyone has seen the volume, is Berel right, or is this a volume I want to own
