“A welcomed contribution to an already established discourse of Jewish-Christian understanding of the relationship between God and Humanity. A must-have volume.” (―Creston Davis Rollins College)
“By contrast, Rashkover’s criticisms of Agamben and others who surreptitiously undermine Jewish law and revelation are quite welcome. Although her own writing is more than a bit tinged by the rhetoric of her postmodern opponents--a problem at times--her sturdy defense of the law in light of contemporary scholarship offers the reader a wealth of ideas to consider. Compelling and frustrating by turns, Freedom and Law may indeed have the power to energize Jewish-Christian apologetics by showing not only the impediments to their mutual discourse, but also the paths to their mutual understanding.” (―H-Judaic)
Freedom and Law offers a prophetic and timely intervention in interreligious dialogue, combining a compelling analysis of law and sovereignty with extensive forays into critical theory and political philosophy as well. Rashkover's insightful and generous yet provocative reading will prove to be a noteworthy touchstone in this field for years to come. (―Willie Young Endicott College)
