'...a first-rate textbook on the intertestamental period.' --Menahem Stern, Journal of Jewish Studies
The obsolete has been excised from text, notes, and bibliographies, which have all been revised. And of course a quantity of wholly new material, unknown to Schürer, has had to be incorporated, such as archaeological finds, the Qumran and Bar Kokhba documents and the Babylonian tablets which have recently been throwing light on obscure areas of Seleucid (and Parthian) chronology...All that was best in the original has been preserved: notably its depth of learning, laudable succinctness, and remarkable clarity of organization. --The Classical Review, Malcolm Colledge
'The appearance of Vol. I of the new Schürer is of such significance that it is not exceeded in importance by any recent publicati9on and approached by very few. Schürer is the handbook par excellence for scholars, who are now in greatest debt to the editors for a labor of devotion and an achievement of sheer excellence...It is impossible to overpraise this volume.' --Samuel Sandmel, The Classical World
