"The tenth anniversary of the remarkable series of Yale Judaica is appropriately marked by the appearance of this translation of perhaps the most important of the extra-canonical minor tractates of the Talmud. . . . The editor and translator have put the world of scholarship under a sufficient debt in making the text itself accessible in so attractive a volume."ÑJournal of Biblical Literature

"This first available English translation of the religious ethics of the ancient Fathers of the Synagogue . . . is an important acquisition for theological and university libraries."ÑLibrary Journal

"There is every reason to expect The Fathers to rank alongside the better-known work in popular study. . . . The book has been imaginatively conceived and presented. More than perhaps any other book published in this Yale Judaica Series it should be welcomed by the Jewish Public."ÑCongress Weekly

"Dr. Goldin's work is a welcome addition to the growing library of rabbinic texts in English, not alone because it is the first attempt at a complete translation of the 'minor' yet important talmudic tractate but also because it demonstrates genuine scholarship and the creative contribution that can be made in the area of translation."ÑJewish Social Studies
