“The question of the original language [of Baruch] is reexamined by Burke from the vantage point of our improved perspective on the language of the intertestamental period. He focuses on a systematic and scientific reconstruction of the original Hebrew text. … We are glad to have now at our disposal such a work of linguistic erudition about a book as neglected as the Book of Baruch. From now on, there can be no lingering doubt about the originality of the Hebrew text of the poetry of Baruch.”
—Pierre D. Gougie, Catholic Biblical Quarterly

“This is a very thorough book. … Burke is convinced that not just the prose, but also the poetry of Baruch is of Hebrew origin. For each major subdivision of Bar 3:9–5:9 he has produced a Hebrew reconstruction next to the Greek (or Syriac) text upon which it is based. The is followed by a detailed phrase-by-phrase commentary, explaining the reconstruction. It is very closely argued and on the whole convincing. … Similarly careful studies of other apocryphal compositions would be welcome indeed.”
—Michael E. Stone, Journal of Biblical Literature
