"This collection of biographies of prophets-Joshua, Elijah, Saul, Jeremiah, and Jonah-does a masterful job of humanizing these figures. However, in the course of his descriptions, Elie Wiesel does more than inform us about their lives and supposed thoughts. He asks today's questions in the context of the past. . . . There is no ambiguity or vagueness in Wiesel's writing. He promises us portraits, and there is not a wasted brushstroke, not a blurred line." -- Christian Century
