Reviews:
  New York Times Book Review
      "A major achievement."
  Library Journal
      "Excellent ... Not only scholars but general readers will profit from this superb anthology."
  Hadassah
      "...the best that contemporary Jewry has to offer."
  The September 10, 2009 Jewish Exponent
      "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 Herald Voice
      "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."
