Reviews
'This carefully argued volume marks a significant contribution to the study of emotion in biblical scholarship, stimulated by burgeoning emotion research across the humanities and sciences. Although writing for the academy, Mermelstein's work is clear and convincing, supported by many quoted primary texts (with English translations) and suggestive of intriguing implications and applications for modern, tension-filled religious life.' F. Scott Spencer, Interpretation: A Journal of Bible and Theology
'Mermelstein's work demonstrates that the study of emotions in ancient Jewish texts goes far beyond emotions per se but also enriches the understanding of these texts and their time period. The book also contributes to broader discussions on religion and politics. It will no doubt prompt new strands of research and invigorate the field.' Françoise M. Irguet, Revue de Qumrân
