505 0  Akiva's early life -- Becoming a sage -- The new sage and 
       public figure -- The mystical interpreter of Torah -- The

       Aspects of Akiva's theology -- Akiva's resistance, 
       imprisonment, and death -- The man and his legacy. 
520    "The legendary Akiva ben Yosef has fascinated Jews for 
       centuries. One of and arguably the most important of the 
       Tannaim, or early Jewish sages, he lived during a crucial 
       era in the development of Judaism as we know it today, and
       his theology played a major part in the development of 
       Rabbinic Judaism. Reuven Hammer details Akiva's life as it
       led to a martyr's death and delves into the rich legacy 
       Akiva left us. That legacy played an extraordinarily 
       important role in helping the Jewish people survive 
       difficult challenges and forge a vibrant religious life 
       anew and it continues to influence Jewish law, ethics, and
       theology even today. Akiva's contribution to the 
       development of Oral Torah cannot be overestimated, and in 
       this first book written in English about the sage since 
       1936, Hammer reassesses Akiva's role from the period 
       before the destruction of the Temple in 70 CE until the 
       Bar Kokhba Revolt in 135 CE. He also assesses new findings
       about the growth of early Judaism, the reasons why Akiva 
       was so outspoken about "Christian Jews," the influence of 
       Hellenism, the Septuagint, and the canonization of the 
       Hebrew Bible. Ultimately, Hammer shows that Judaism 
       without Akiva would be a very different religion"--
