Endorsements & Reviews-

"This book is engagingly written and concisely surveys biblical books, some scholarly views about them, and also Christian and rabbinic interpretations of these books. Because Christian readers are usually least familiar with the rabbinic perspectives, they may find these the most enlightening of all."
--Craig S. Keener, Professor of New Testament, Asbury Theological Seminary
