Reviews

"A profound, moving book...refreshing, inspiring" --The Wall Street Journal"A superb mirror of a place, a time, and a group of people who capture our immediate interest and holid it tightly." --The Philadelphia Inquirer"The characterizations are vivid, the incidents dramatic, the narrative fluid. . . . Overall . . . a glow of human erudition and compassion." --Washington Post Book World"Brilliantly and intricately conceived. . . . The Chosen established Chaim Potok's reputation as a significant writer. The Promise reaffirms it."-The New York Times Book Review
