"I would be surprised if Jesus and Judaism does not turn out to be the most significant book of the decade in its field."
The New York Times
"What Sanders offers is good history clearly stated hypotheses, expressed presuppositions, critically considered evidence, prudent and plausible conclusions . . . . Jesus and Judaism is a milestone study."
The New Republic
"The greatest value of Jesus and Judaism is that it embodies a generation's desire to avoid exaggerations from right or left, to stop portraying Jesus as a predecessor of Martin Heidegger or Nicaragua's President, Daniel Ortega, and to try to understand what he meant to say and accomplish."
