I can't recommend this book enough. It is well written and authoritatively researched, and good academic pedigree. It is comparable with Marvin Wilson's "Our Father Abraham", but is different though complimentary. Both books should be compulsory reading to any one serious about understanding the Hebraic origins of the Christian faith; and how it developed initially as a sect within Judaism before they went their separate ways. I must confess that it is a little while now since I read it, so will not offer a more detailed critique. However I think both Jewish people and Christians alike would benefit from reading books like these, as it would help mutual understanding and empathy and hopefully lead to better Jewish- Christian dialogue and relationships.
