The Hidden Revolution. The Pharisees' Search for the Kingdom Within. Nashville: Abingdon, 1978

This is a necessary corrective to the long transmitted and near intransigent caricature of the Pharisees which has stemmed from an uncritical reading of the New Testament. Rivkin analyses evidence for the Pharisees in the New Testament, the works of Josephus (Jewish historian of the first century C.E.) and the Rabbinic literature.
