Some brief overview of book

Most of us think of avodah zarah as something repugnant, forbidden, and entirely outside our scope of interest. But its treatment in Tanach and by Chazal shows much complexity that we gloss over. Rabbi Klein, a talmid chacham and scholar, does the heavy lifting for us, uncovering what we need to know - and entirely in the spirit of Chazal and our mesorah.

-Rabbi Yitzchok Adlerstein, Director of Interfaith Affairs, Simon Wiesenthal Center Much of the Bible is an attack on various pagan rituals that were practiced by the Israelites and their neighbors...But the exact meaning and nature of what is being condemned and why are shrouded in mystery - with the result that large parts of our own sacred texts are simply not understood. Rabbi Klein is providing a very useful service in filling this lacuna. -Rabbi Dr. Yitzchak Breitowitz, Rav, Kehillat Ohr Somayach, Jerusalem, Israel Rabbi Reuven Chaim Klein once again combines traditional rabbinic scholarship with historical and archeological information to give us a complete and comprehensive treatment of a vast topic...Engaging and informative, this unique book is highly recommended for those who want to gain a deeper understanding of the main obstacle to the Jewish People's relationship with G-d in the time of the Bible.

-Rabbi Dr. Zvi Ron, Editor, Jewish Bible Quarterly.
