â€śIt is Henzeâ€™s attention to [Second Baruchâ€™s] discourse, heightened by his thorough knowledge of the biblical background and of the methodologies of biblical, particularly Old Testament, studies, together with his thoughtfulness, that give this work its distinctive character and make it such a significant contribution. Much more should be said about this book, but the above comments suffice to show my admiration for Henzeâ€™s undertaking. I do not even remark on the careful textual analysis, learned exegesis, and thorough knowledge of the history of scholarship, which characterizes this book. These are notable, but I felt it important in this review to highlight points that distinguish this significant work. In them, Henze goes beyond fine professional scholarship.â€ť Michael E.
