Rabbi Milton Steinberg

Publisher: Behrman House

As A Driven Leaf is a novel in which fictional and historical characters comfortably coexist. It is a gripping tale of the renegade Talmudic sage, Elisha ben Abuyah, caught in a personal struggle between his own faith and the compelling culture of Rome, circa 70 CE.

The genius of Milton Steinberg's great work is that it illuminates the political and intellectual conflicts of Rabbinic times in a way that shows their relevance to Jewish faith, nationhood and personal development in every era, including our own.

About the Author --

When Milton Steinberg died in March 1950, at the tragically young age of 46, he was the spiritual leader of New York's Park Avenue Synagogue and widely considered one of America's most brilliant young rabbinic thinkers. He taught at the Jewish Theological Seminary in New York and shared in the development of Reconstruction under the leadership of his close friend and mentor, Rabbi Mordecai Kaplan. Steinberg was one of the first American rabbis to be equally literate in western secular culture and in the Jewish intellectual tradition. "As A Driven Leaf" was first published in 1940 and has been in print ever since.
