Goldy's book is different from any other book on Jewish theology. He has presented a popular, pithy and extremely informative volume for the scholar as well as for the average intelligent reader... " —Jewish Post and Opinion

... excellent primer on Jewish theology... " —Heritage Southwest Jewish Press

... a significant and unique contribution to an understanding of contemporary Jewish theology... Goldy's command of modern Christian theologians and his ability to indicate how these thinkers have informed their Jewish students and peers make this an innately compelling work for students of western theology... [and] observers of comparative religious trends." —David Ellenson
