The genius of Milton Steinberg's great work is that it illuminates the political and intellectual conflicts of Rabbinic times in a way that shows their relevance to Jewish faith, nationhood, and personal development in every era, including our own.
A helpful Listener's Guide adds fascinating historical background on the book's events - including Bar Kochba's bloody revolt against the Romans - and its characters, among them the great woman scholar Bruriah and the revered Rabbi Akiba.

This book is not for everyone, as it is more about reflection, faith and doubt than sheer entertainment. However, for those who think about life and purpose, meaning and time, this is a wonderful story which teaches an important lesson.
