Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
There is no lack of daily inspirational guides for Christians of all persuasions--for older women, for businessmen, for gay men and lesbians. But there are surprisingly few for Jewish readers. Olitzky (Twelve Jewish Steps to Recovery) and Rabbi Forman's clear and simply written book--which expands upon one quotation from Hebrew Scripture per day--goes a long way toward filling that gap. They include contributions from over 40 Jewish leaders and writers. Recommended for collections where there is a strong Jewish readership. Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
