Rabbi Telushkin has done a remarkable service for readers of what we commonly call the Old Testament. Those who may have had difficulty in reading the scriptures will find that is one book that is hard to put down. The insights into Judaism, both ancient and modern, are facinating and shed light on many obscure passages. It is also very instructive for those not familiar with Jewish customs and rituals. In addition the rabbi has blended into his narrative some of the traditions that Christians, and other faiths, share with Judaism. This book will make an invaluable addition to the library of anyone who seeks to understand the Scriptues and the basics of both the Jewish and Christian faiths.

An excellent overview of biblical times, and can be used as a story book for children. I read it to my grandson who is 8 years old.
