Maybe this was the wrong book for what I was looking for. I wanted a book that inspired/changed my religous thoughts. I wanted something to wake me up spiritually. This did not do it. I think this book would be great for those who are embedded in their spiritual beliefs. But if you are still searching for answers with your faith this is not the book for you. I found myself quickly in over my head and never once found myself really engaged in the book. I was always searching for clarity with what I had just read.

Ari Goldman tells an interesting story, and gives a somewhat critical description of Harvard Divinity School. But he tends to stray from the topic too much, and the book is overall very disorganized. He tells some interesting stories and presents some nice information, but then he goes off on too many tangents and doesn't really get his points across.
