"'Levenson draws out subtle connections and makes fine distinctions, never claiming more for his evidence than what it will bear... The prose of Resurrection and the Restoration of Israel is clear and often powerful, having absorbed much of the poetry and primal strength of the biblical passages it examines. Professor Levenson has written for an audience well beyond his fellow biblical scholars.' Peter Steinfels, New York Times"
