A true scholarly achievement in the field – Professor Martin Lockshin, Lehrhaus
[Shadal’s] phenomenal erudition and sensitivity to philological and literary nuance are evident on every page of his commentary, and the quality of his Hebrew admirably reflects his deep devotion to the language. His writing is perspicuous and incisive, and Klein’s English captures those qualities well. – Dr. Alan Cooper, Review of Biblical Literature
Shadal lived during the flowering of the Haskalah. He was a creative and independent thinker and a fierce defender of tradition. In particular, his commentary on the Torah continues in the tradition of the classical peshat commentaries with his own original contributions and frequent use of historical scholarship. – Rabbi Gil Student
Daniel Klein continues to spread the teachings of an important, but too often overlooked, biblical interpreter. – Mitchell First, Jewish Link
Klein does a superb job capturing what Shadal was trying to achieve. And that was a commentary focusing on the peshat, the plain meaning of the biblical text. – Ben Rothke, Times of Israel
