Editorial Reviews

"Superb in its critical analysis...and its full emphasis upon the deep religious insights that give a common core to many of the beliefs of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. [Sandmel's] paraphrases of many of the significant passages are excellent."--Lee A. Belford, New York University
