Insightful and Inspirational
While no one can approximate the pain of the Pearls, this book takes their unfortunate experience pain and transforms it into a book of hope and inspiration for all of us. While this is a particularly Jewish book, it procides a great deal of insight to those who are in an interfaith relationship and the American public in general. One entry is more powerful than the next. I read it from cover to cover in one sitting but I know I will continue to return to it regularly.

A stunning display of the richness and variety of Jewish identity
I think that anyone who takes interest in the meaning of what it is to be Jewish can learn from this work. The contributors use their individual life experience, and the special challenges each has known to provide insight into the value of Judaism for them. One central theme is of course the Jewish respect for the dignity of the human being, a kind of respect not at all present in the haters and murderers of the kind that so cruelly took Daniel Pearl's life. Reading this work one feels not only a new hope for the Jewish , but also for the human future. Perhaps those who love their fellow human beings will be the ones who will after all triumph in reshaping the human future.
