Reviews

"Outside the Bible will replace classic earlier anthologies as the premier compendium of primary texts for scholars and teachers of the period."--Hindy Najman, Jewish Review of Books
"This publication is a gold mine. The series is beautifully printed and bound. On display are the creative geniuses of Second Temple Judaism who have excited both Jews and Christians. The insights shared in the commentaries are superb."--James H. Charlesworth, Bible History Daily -- (1/16/2015 12:00:00 AM)
"Outside the Bible is probably the most am­bitious project undertaken by The Jewish Publication Society in many years."--Peter L. Rothholz, Jewish Book Council
"Biblical scholars, Second Temple period historians, and Jewish educators will find themselves consulting Outside the Bible regularly."--Igal German, Society of Biblical Literature-- (6/11/2015 12:00:00 AM)
"The work of more than seventy contributing experts in a range of fields, Outside the Bible offers new insights into the development of Judaism and Early Christianity. This three-volume set of translations, introductions, and detailed commentaries is a must for scholars, students, and anyone interested in this great body of ancient Jewish writings."--Review of Biblical Literature
"These worthwhile volumes will open a whole new world of exegetical literature to the general public and are highly recommended."--David Zucker, Jewish Bible Quarterly
"Breathtaking in its scope and eminently satisfying in its execution, Outside the Bible will prove to be an indispensable reference for every scholar of the Hebrew Bible, Second Temple Judaism, the New Testament, and early Christianity. With introductions to and translations of the mass of noncanonical Jewish writings produced from the Exile up to the Mishnah, by an eminent group of internationally renowned scholars, here we have a resource that will meet scholarly needs for generations to come."--Bart D. Ehrman, James A. Gray Professor, Department of Religious Studies, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill-- (11/28/2012 12:00:00 AM)
