Editorial Reviews

"A major achievement."—New York Times Book Review

"Excellent . . . Not only scholars but general readers will profit from this superb anthology."—Library Journal

"The best that contemporary Jewry has to offer."—Hadassah

"There's perhaps no way that any reviewer, in such a relatively small space, could possibly convey the riches that have been amassed ... between the covers of 20th Century Jewish Religious Thought."—Jewish Exponent

"The great strength of these essays is that they were written for the layman, without academic jargon but without oversimplification. No other reference book has brought me so much pleasure over the years."—Jewish Herald Voice
