Steinberg's novel of a rabbi's crisis of faith in ancient Rome has been a classic since its publication in 1940. Beautifully written and impeccably researched, this book is hardly a casual read, but with the help of Guidall's gentle tone and natural storyteller's nuance, this story of second-century Palestine comes alive for the listener. The inner conflicts of Elisha Ben Abuyah, who struggles with his own beliefs about God and Truth, are projected against the political clash of the Jewish nation against Roman domination. Included in the package is a 15-page booklet providing glossary and useful background information. S.E.S. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/JAN 01]
