The first review of my book on Targum Ruth, The Proselyte and the Prophet, came out this week on Reading Religion. Steven Fassberg offered a very gracious summary and review of the book while providing context for the study of the Targumim of the Megilloth. Please read it all, but to keep the suspense from building any longer, here are some of his concluding words.
As much as the book is about the Targum Ruth, it also about how targum is inextricably part of the larger rabbinic literature and must be examined in the light of other rabbinic works. The work is a lucid and well-written exposition of the nature of Targum Ruth.
Thank you Steven. I am honored that you reviewed my book and humbled by your kind words.
