Reviews

-John J. Collins has completely updated his classic book on messianism, interacting with the many discussions on the topic of the last fifteen years, including the newly published 'Vision of Gabriel.' This second edition of The Scepter and the Star will enlighten a whole new generation. . . . The reference work for years to come.- -- Florentino Garcia-Martinez Katholieke Universiteit Leuven -This new edition of Collins's classic contains updated bibliography and notes throughout, as well as a very useful and circumspect assessment of the recent work of Israel Knohl. Reflecting a fine command of the scholarship and characteristically excellent critical judgment, The Scepter and the Star is still the best work available on early messianism.- -- Saul M. Olyan Brown University -Yet another of Collins's must-have books for students of the Bible and early Jewish literature.- -- Mark S. Smith New York University -This second edition updates an authoritative and accessible guide to the messianic figures of the Dead Sea Scrolls and related literature. Collins's judgments are well balanced, and his conclusions concerning the tantalizing evidence of the fragments of the Scrolls are substantial but healthily tentative. The bibliography alone, some forty percent larger than that of the first edition, is a major resource for all students engaged in the study of early Jewish messianism. Most welcome.- -- George J. Brooke University of Manchester -A must-read for anyone interested in the early history of Judaism and the development of nascent Christianity.- -- Lawrence H. Schiffman New York University John J.
