Editorial Reviews


Rendered in clear, succinct prose, this fine study will be useful to specialists yet accessible to nonspecialists.... Recommended.Choice


a solid work of literary historical research that enriches our understandings of rabbinic literature, religion, and scholarly culture within the broader context of Hellenistic society.

(Eliezer Segal H-Judaic)

Elijah and the Rabbis is both an enjoyable read and a refreshing contribution to scholarship.

(Sonya S. Cronin Review of Biblical Literature)


Like a craftsman who recognizes that a particular raw material will be best handled by a custom-made tool, Kristen H. Lindbeck considers the strengths and weaknesses of various existing methods to cobble together her own approach to handling the diverse Elijah texts of the Bavli. In doing so, she is able to accomplish more, more satisfactorily, than previous studies.

(Christine Hayes, Yale University)
