Engaged with previous scholarship and bringing to bear new material and literary evidence, this book offers a new understanding of the history, identity, and relationship of early Samaritans and Jews. While the focus has traditionally been on the "ten lost tribes" and on long-held antagonisms between Jews and Samaritans, close examination of a wider array of literary evidence (including biblical texts and the Dead Sea Scrolls) and new material evidence (archaeological excavations, ancient inscriptions, papyri, coins) reveals important continuities and convergences between Judeans and Samaritans in the ancient world.

Prof. Dr. A. van der Kooij (Leiden University), Bibliotheca Orientalis LXXIV N 3.4 Revisiting the fate of the Northern Israelites from the late 8th century up to the 2nd century BCE, Knoppers presents in this study an innovative answer to the question of the origin of the Samaritans.

Jeffrey Stackert, Conversations with the Biblical World There is an immense amount to learn from this book, and it is highly relevant for many areas of scholarly research, including ancient Near Eastern history, the Hebrew Bible, early Judaism, the New Testament, and early Christianity. It is also eminently readable and thus accessible to students and other interested non-specialists; I could easily see it being used in both undergraduate and graduate courses...Jews and Samaritans is a rich, informative, and even provocative study. Its judicious arguments are formidable and guarantee its enduring influence; that the book will certainly prompt several new directions of inquiry only promises to extend its impact further. Professor Knoppers is to be congratulated on his impressive achievement in this book.

Steven Schweitzer, Conversations with the Biblical World As can be seen both in the structure and content of this book, Knoppers brings his extensive knowledge and insights to bear on careful and reasoned analyses of data relevant to understanding the relationships of the Jews and the Samaritans across multiple centuries.

Journal of Near Eastern Studies Building upon twenty-five years of groundbreaking research, Gary N. Knoppers provides a masterful overview of the state of Samarian studies and his own current assessment of Samarian history and culture....Knoppers' thoroughness and erudition are matched by fine methodological sophistication, the good questions he poses, and the deliberate way in which he approaches data. His pleasingly complex conclusions pay full attention to contradictions and ambiguities in the evidence.

Catholic Biblical Quarterly At last, a definitive and balanced study of a significant topic that has been mired in scholarly, and even political, contentiousness....Effectively overturns a number of scholarly and popular perceptions about the history of Samaritans and Jews, such as traditions about the 'Ten Lost Tribes'...The most valuable work on the subject...The book is indispensable for scholars in several biblical specialties and of immense value for Bible students and nonspecialists.

Review of Biblical Literature Gary N. Knoppers . . . presents us with a magnificent study on how Israelites became 'Samaritans' and 'Jews,' how they 'separated' and still remained 'together in their otherness for many centuries....An important and stimulating study...Gary Knoppers's book offers a refreshingly new perspective on the origins of both Jews and Samaritans. It is to be recommended to everyone interested in the history and culture of ancient Palestine.

Steven L. McKenzie, Professor of Hebrew Bible/Old Testamen...
