Law, Ethics, and Customs:
RevisedThe Divine Code is a comprehensive, clear, and expertly researched English-language guide for study and practical observance of the Seven Commandments for the Children of Noah (all non-Jews). It examines the Torah-law foundations and details of the Noahide precepts, and unlike the popular overviews that were available in the past, this authoritative text is footnoted with extensively researched Talmudic and post-Talmudic sources. It clearly identifies and applies the fundamental principles by which the practical requirements for righteous living are determined for pious non-Jews.
