The concept of What's Beyond the Bible Text? is very clear-cut. As a recent review in Jewish Joy Reading put it - "To ask questions and probe for deeper understanding of familiar information." But the discussions and questions brought up are far from simple. The book is written by academic scholars, Stanley M. Wagner and Israel Drazin, and explores a wealth of contemporary issues while cross-referencing the entire Torah. A wide range of themes are presented, ranging from legal, moral, and ethical issues - including marriage, animal rights, the afterlife, the meaning of life...and more.

"This book is a professional text. It is well researched and put together in a clear fashion...For the right crowd, this can be an unbelievable tool to start Torah discussion at the Shabbos table or the classroom."
