About Rabbi Dr. Milton Steinberg

Steinberg's work As A Driven Leaf, a historical novel revolving around the talmudic characters Elisha ben Abuyah and Rabbi Akiba.

Steinberg's novel wrestles with the 2nd century Jewish struggle to reconcile Rabbinic Judaism both culturally and philosophically with Greek Hellenistic society.

Sixty years after the rabbi’s death, a novel thought to be ‘too hot to handle’ for its tale
of the Prophet Hosea and his prostitute wife, is published.

Novels ▪ As a Driven Leaf (1939) ▪ The Prophet's Wife (2010)


▪ The Making of the Modern Jew (1934) ▪ A Partisan Guide to the Jewish Problem (1945) ▪ Basic Judaism (1947) ▪ A Believing Jew (1951) ▪ Anatomy of Faith (1960)
