    Larger Sample Needed

    This sample needs to be a few pages longer in order to make an informed decision whether or not to purchase.

    Have been told David Stern is well respected Messianic author, but need to see for myself whether I would benefit from reading this book. Thus, 3 stars for author's reputation. (?)

    Sorry, have to pass for now...
