"Frankfurter's analysis of The Apocalypse of Elijah is a detailed and creative piece of work. His mastery of literary theory and the social-scientific method is evident throughout, and the union of the two methods in this work is impressive." James E. Goehring, Mary Washington College

"This book is a remarkable piece of work. Frankfurter makes a convincing case for the use of native Egyptian prophetic traditions in the Apocalypse of Elijah." Birger A. Pearson, University of California, Santa Barbara
