5.0 out of 5 stars Jews: A Story of a People
This book gives a clear, detailed, fascinating depiction of the progress and evolution of the Jews and their God from earliest Nomadic times of wandering the desert, through the centuries, to the beginning of the state of Israel.

This book gives a clear, detailed, fascinating depiction of the progress and evolution of the Jews and their God from earliest Nomadic times of wandering the desert, through the centuries, to the beginning of the state of Israel. It tells historically and accurately, but with the fascination of a novel, the contributions made by the Jews to the places and the peoples among whom they lived, and the harsh, many times inhuman treatment they received. It includes their participation in the development of the New World and their homeland of Israel. Of particular interest is the description of the start of Christianity and its influence throughout the centuries.
