Reviews

"Jonathan Crane's re-imagining of law and ethics within the Jewish narrative tradition offers a thoughtful and scholarly reflection on the reception and use of the text for bioethics, deepening the conversation about the primacy of narrative not just for the Jewish tradition, but for bioethics as a whole. Our field will be enriched by Crane's creativity and insight." - Laurie Zoloth, McCormick Professor 2009, Religious Studies, Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences, Professor of Medical Humanities and Bioethics, Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern University, USA, Affiliated Professor, Haifa University, Israel

"Crane provides a comprehensive and carefully argued exploration of one of the central narrative texts for Jewish bioethics. Narratives and Jewish Bioethics critiques the prevalent ways of reading Jewish narratives as limited and limiting, and also proposes a way to retrieve these ancient texts and place them again at the center of Jewish bioethical discourse. Crane's scholarship is both original and illuminating." - Louis E. Newman, John M. and Elizabeth Musser Professor of Religious Studies, Carleton College, USA
