"Schechter is one of the great minds of Jewish scholarship of our century, and his succinct syntheses of rabbinic teachings are still valuable almost 100 years after they were written. For students who need a handle on the complexity of rabbinic thought, these essays are learned and yet very accessible." -- Professor Steven Fraade, Professor of Religious Studies, Yale University
"Solomon Schechter's Aspects of Rabbinic Theology is a classic. A pioneer work with enduring value has been reissued with a masterful introduction by Professor Neil Gillman. This work still speaks to every generation of students of the Jewish tradition." -- Dr. Alfred Gottschalk, President, Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion
Schechter labored to mediate the dynamic otherness of Judaism to Christian America in unalloyed, clear and graceful prose." -- Professor Ismar Schorsch, Chancellor, The Jewish Theological Seminary of America
This is the only book on the theology of Judaism written 100 years ago that anyone can read today with profit." -- Jacob Neusner, Distinguished Research Professor of Religious Studies, University of South Florida
