    Aptly Named . . . Treasures Revealed

    Steven Evans¿s treatise, Lifting the Veil is aptly named. For too long Rabbis in the Reform and, to some extent, in the Conservative Movement, have wittingly or unwittingly kept behind the folds of the curtain, certain traditional and meaningful elementals of the faith. Evans¿s scientific background and study of the phenomenological conceptualizations of faith render him particularly astute in joining the coterie of contemporary works that attempt to shed light on the deep penetrable and impenetrable aspects of Judaism and Judaica. Although the work will certainly allow space for debate and there will be areas both the educated and the initiate may find at first extraordinary, a closer examination will reveal an intellect determined and competent to try to return some things that were lost. The reader may find reason and belief to agree or to disagree, but without question will be worthily engaged. In style and construct, it is written in a manner fluid and approachable by both the scholar and the lay person interested alike. I highly recommend it. Donald R. Schwartz Associate Professor Of Speech, Theatre and Mass Communication Community College of Baltimore County¿Essex Author of Noah¿s Ark: An Annotated Encyclopedia Of All the Animal Species in the Hebrew Bible
