The series Commentaries on Early Jewish Literature (CEJL) is devoted to the study of Jewish documents and traditions that can be dated or traced back to the Hellenistic and Roman periods (ca. 300 BCE-150 CE). The literature covered by the series represents a rich diversity of literary forms and religious perspectives. Formally, these writings include testaments, apocalypses, legends, expansions and interpretations of biblical writings, psalms and prayers, poetry, historiography, and wisdom literature. They witness to an immensely creative period during which many Jews were struggling to preserve a living faith in the wake of social, political, and religious upheavals in the Mediterranean world and the Near East.

"Quest'opera inaugura in modo eccellente una nuova serie di commentari sulla letterature giudaica antica. [...] un'opera di grande valore e utitlita, che rappresentera un punto di riferimento imprescindibile, in particolare per lo studio del testo di Tobia."Flavio Dalla Vecchia in: Rivista Biblica LIV/2006 "Every student of Second Temple Judaism will be grateful for this commentary. On philological and textual issues, there is no more reliable guide than Fitzmayer. He has provided scholars with a solid base for future work. Many questions remain open regarding date, provenance, literary genre, and composition. But Fitzmayer's commentary will be a primary reference work on Tobit for scholars who wish to ponder these issues."John J. Collins in: Journal of Near Eastern Studies 4/2005 "... if you want a careful and up-to-date commentary on the ancient witness to the Book of Tobit from a authoritative scholar, this volume will fit the bill perfectly."Jeremy Corley in: Journal of Jewish Studies 1/2004 "Der detailreiche Band wird kunftig in Verbindung mit Christian J. Wagners Tobit-Synopse fur jede weitere Forschung am Tobit-Buch unentbehrlich sein."B. Ego in: ZAW 2004
