"This is a story about a Jew written by a non-Jew for non-Jews as well as Jews to read.... It might better have been written by a Hebrew scholar, but no Hebrew scholar had done it. Besides, it then would have been a book interesting only to other Hebrew scholars. The story is too pulsating with human struggle to be written exclusively for students of philology.

It is the story of a faithful fanatic who made enemies of his best friends, went to prison for his beliefs, was always on the verge of death from tuberculosis, yet fathered eleven children, gathered the material for a sixteen-volume dictionary unlike any other philological work ever conceived, authored plays, a geography, and two of the most urgent 'appeals' ever addressed to his own people, and died while working on the word for 'soul.'
