Hi. Suppose there was somebody studying Comparative Religion and s/he didn’t want to read every text from every religion. In that case, which book(s) in Judaism would you tell her/him to read at the very least ?
Which parts of the Tanakh are considered the Word of God, parts which represent the essence of Judaism, and you would recommend any person to read for the wisdom it contains?
