Description: This magnificent work of modern fiction brings the age of the Talmud to life, and explores the times of Elisha ben Abuyah, a great sage turned heretic, whose struggle to live in two worlds destroyed his chances to live in either.
The author portrays the rabbis of the Talmud as real people. One comes away with a picture of Akiva, Joshua, Eliezer, Meir, Gamliel and Beruria. One also gains a picture of the political and intellectual challenges for Jews in Roman Palestine.
