MEDIA REVIEWS
"In this stunning tour-de-force, Stephen Geller makes the voices of biblical tradition live again and resound for contemporary readers. He explores the congeries of biblical traditions- the Deuteronomic, the priestly, wisdom, and prophecy- and illuminates how they transformed what was before them, how they vied with each other for preeminence, and highlights their multiplicity and the dynamics of their innovation. He examines each one of these traditions and brings the entire enterprise to a symphonic conclusion.. it is hoped that he [Geller] will continue to write and grapple more directly with this issue in his future work; this reader will be waiting with great expectation."
-Pamela Barmash, "Conservative Judaism
"This is an impressive book that merits a wide readership ... Geller has the touch that comes from thoughtful learning and careful teaching ... A final word to those who read one book on the Bible each year: make Geller's "Sacred Enigmas this year's choice."
-"Christianity and Literature
..."a thoughtful, careful, and mature work...Geller has produced a fine, reflective work that deserves the careful reading of sophisticated lay readers of biblical scholarship and all within the guild of Hebrew Bible scholarship."
-"Review of Biblical Literature
