"Summing Up: Recommended. Professionals/practitioners; theologians." (Choice, 1 August 2013)
"His presentation of Maimonides and Hermann Cohen is noteworthy for being succinct but fair.......his discussion of liturgical reasoning is a “must-read” for any student wishing to understand Jewish prayer." (Religious Studies Review 2016)
“A signally important book that argues for the intrinsically hermeneutical character of Jewish theology [from] one of the founders of the contemporary Jewish theological circle of ‘textual reasoning.’ This work of contemporary Jewish theology provides real instruction to the hermeneutical tasks of Christian and Islamic theology as well. A major work.”—David Tracy, University of Chicago
