This is a clearly written scholarly work. In other words, the context of much research and knowledge is needed to read it and understand his arguments, but it is written in a straightforward, well-organized manner. He covers rabbinical texts, gnostic texts, early Christian father letters and excerpts from the New Testament canon to work backwards through rabbinic polemics about the "two powers in heaven" heresy, searching for historical clues to tie those attacks to communities in a particular place and time. Important for the study of early Christianity, gnosticism and the rabbi movement, this book comes highly recommended for students of religious studies.
