"Eliezer Segal seamlessly combines almost 3000 years of Jewish religious texts from the Bible to 19th century CE Hasidism in one volume with new and meaningful English translations and explanations. This is suitable for undergraduates and graduate students alike and could serve as the main textbook for a range of courses in Jewish and biblical studies."
- Richard A. Freund, Director of The Maurice Greenberg Center for Judaic Studies, University of Hartford, USA
